Waiting for Godot
Synopsis

A tragicomedy in two parts, Waiting For Godot follows two days in the lives of wandering vagabonds Vladimir and his friend Estragon on a barren country road as they wait expectantly by a lone tree in hope for salvation from a man called Godot. A man they hope will give them answers to their undefined questions. While waiting, they fool around, entertaining one another with feisty debate and comedic Vaudevillian tricks.

Instead of Godot they meet two eccentric travellers, the overbearing landowner Pozzo, and his tormented servant Lucky and a young boy who advises them that ‘Mr Godot won’t come here today but he’ll surely arrive tomorrow’. When tomorrow comes, still determining to leave, the pair remain and wait, they wait for Godot.

Few plays have attracted so much interpretation. Much attention has been centred on the character of the cryptic Godot. But perhaps the real subject of this extraordinary text is not Godot, but waiting.

This production from Ireland’s AC Productions has thrilled and entertained audiences since 2005.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Shakespeare's Globe
Shakespeare’s Globe returns to Singapore with three of the playwright’s most popular plays - Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice and The Taming of the Shrew.How did a company tour in Shakespeare’s day? We know that when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles in three or four plays from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. We also know that the choice of play or entertainment was left to the most powerful person of the household.Cast your vote!So, following in the tradition of our resident playwright, a company of eight actors will offer audiences a choice of three plays. And also in keeping with tradition – and with thrilling unpredictability – the choice of play will be put back into the hands of the most powerful members of the house: the audience.Follow in the tradition of a Shakespearean audience and get involved, raise your hands and shout out loud to cast your vote for your favourite play!Join us this September to watch one of the three plays on a specific date, or attend one of the Audience Choice shows, where you – the audience- will choose the play just before the performance is set to begin.The Merchant of Venice - In Venice, the epicentre of consumption, speculation and debt, Bassanio borrows money from his friend Antonio to finance his attempt to win the hand of Portia, a wealthy heiress.Twelfth Night - In the household of the Countess Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick Duke Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio.The Taming of the Shrew - Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Kate?
