Waiting for Godot

BUY TICKETS

Lingering by the side of the road, killing time with hat tricks and half-remembered stories, Estragon and Vladimir dawdle through one of the greatest dramas of the 20th century. In Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett’s absurd, anarchic exploration of time, life is vaudeville and tragedy, philosophy and confusion, teetering on the edge of despair but tuned with Beckett’s unique blend of poetry and humor.

Druid, “one of the world’s greatest acting ensembles” (The Guardian), and Tony Award-winning director Garry Hynes bring “the freshest, funniest and most affecting production of the play in at least a quarter of a century” (The Irish Times) to STC in its regional premiere.
