Waiting for God by Samuel Beckett
Circa Theatre – Wellington
4 May – 1 June 2019
Two homeless men wait on a bare road with a single tree. They are in no particular time or place – nowhere and everywhere. Over two days they argue, get bored, clown around, repeat themselves, and wait. They’re waiting for the one who will never come. They’re waiting for Godot. Who, or what, is Godot? Whatever you want, a metaphor for every kind of thing you can think of. Essentially Waiting for Godot is about lying in the gutter but looking at the stars. And then of course, there’s the writing
and the humour. It leaps off the stage and is hugely emotional and compassionate and funny. Beckett himself said that the laughter and the tears were all that mattered.
