Waiting For Godot

I am not a theater person….not a big fan of musicals….or for that matter Shakespeare…..did enjoy some of the Greek tragedies and one two act play called “Waiting For Godot”…..

For those not familiar with this 2 act play…..

tragicomedy in two acts by Irish writer Samuel Beckett, published in 1952 in French as En attendant Godot and first produced in 1953. Waiting for Godot was a true innovation in drama and the Theatre of the Absurd’s first theatrical success.

For those visually and mentally imparted here is a video that explains the play….

Now that I have stepped into the realm of nostalgia maybe I should explain my trip down this path…..

I recalled this play because of a photo I took of my best friend and companion, MoMo….

For some reason the photo caught my fancy and made me think of the play…..

I leave with a quote from a bathroom stall…..this is for all those theatrical nerds…..

‘I’ll Be Right Back”–Godot

Enjoy your day…..

Be Well…..Be Safe…..

Peace Out!

  1. I have see that play twice, with different actors in the roles. My favourite Beckett play is ‘Krapp’s Last Tapes’, a one act play ith a cast on one male actor. I saw that three times, with different leads.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Peace Out: the grammar of the word Peace – employed as a noun rather than a verb. As a verb peace requires mutually shared trust.

      1. Shakespearean Plays, you mentioned that you have studied some of his plays, they play out in either 3 or 5 acts.

      2. My mistake, seem to remember you wrote that you had read a bit of the father of English literature. Minored in English so as a consequence studied that bard.
