Waiting for Godot has become of the most important and enigmatic plays of the past fifty years and a cornerstone of twentieth-century drama. As Clive Barnes wrote, “Time catches up with genius … Waiting for Godot is one of the masterpieces of the century.”

The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone—or something—named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree, inhabiting a drama spun of their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning. Beckett’s language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existential post-World War II Europe. His play remains one of the most magical and beautiful allegories of our time.

Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, which has been described as the most significant English language play of the 20th century. But this is a strange thing, for the play is about two homeless fellows named Vladimir and Estragon, who spend two full acts doing nothing but wandering around in circular conversations, trying to amuse themselves with clownish behavior while waiting around for someone named Godot, who never comes.
