Waiting for Godot – a title that has become proverbial throughout the world. Probably no other 20th-century play holds such universal appeal. It is fair to state that, on the night when his “tragicomedy in two acts” premiered, Samuel Beckett completely changed not just dramatic literature, but the theatrical condition itself.

On a road, by a tree, two down-and-out wights, seemingly out of a vaudeville routine or a silent film, amuse themselves with games and pranks, cry, laugh, and discuss everything: a pair of boots, the Gospels, suicide… They are waiting for someone who is not coming, who never comes: Godot, the mystery-character Beckett always refused to identify as God, being more interested in highlighting what happens while we wait than in what we are waiting for.
