Named the most significant play of the twentieth century in a survey of leading theatre professionals, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot is a hilarious, moving, disquieting exploration of human existence. The play follows two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, as they pass the time waiting for a mysterious figure who could save them from their troubles.
Directed by Harvard '07 alum Dan Wilner, this distinctive production will be staged in the round in a small black-box theatre, creating an intimacy between audience and performers that will offer a unique experience of the play's empathy and humanity.The show runs from March 23 to April 16, with performances Thursday through Sunday evenings and Sunday matinees. Tickets can be purchased online at godotla.bpt.me. Use code earlybird for $30 tickets for the first two weeks of the show.Follow The Open Circle Theatre Company on Instagram and look out for free giveaways to the show!
