Waiting for Godot

About The Play
“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.


2nd row from the front!

Great play. I've seen about 4 different versions of this play and enjoyed each one of them.

Wow, great seats! Enjoy!

You know, some scholars believe that the play was inspired by Laurel & Hardy.

Good Tuesday afternoon, my Christmas friends!

I've been outside all day observing a product test. Gosh, it's hot! I'm finally back in Birmingham in my room, but we're meeting at 6:00 for dinner. These are the eating-est people I've ever been around. And they like to eat well, while the company is buying...LOL.

I hope y'all have a great day!

both house look scary to me! Adding lots of tall dead trees, making it hard to both see and get through with lots of under growth. Long stings of moss hanging from the branches that will brush against anyone making their way though it to the house.
