AdHoc Beaumont will premiere “Waiting for Godot” at the Federal Correctional Complex in Beaumont, followed by performances at The Betty Greenberg Center for Performing Arts on April 28-29 and May 5-6.
Voted the “most significant English language play of the 20th century in a 1998 survey of playwrights, “Waiting for Godot” is considered a masterpiece of surrealist existentialism. Two wandering vagabonds wait by a lonely tree to meet Mr. Godot, an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place and memory are blurred and meaning is where you find it. The men hope that Godot will change their lives for the better.
This poetic meditation on life and the human experience in this Samuel Beckett play is bound to inspire.
