The Patio Playhouse rendition of Samuel Beckett’s tragicomedy “Waiting for Godot” through January 29 at the intimate downtown Escondido theater.
The Nobel Prize winning writer Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot leads off the theater’s 2017 season. This existential masterpiece tells the story of two wandering tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, who wait by a lonely tree to meet up with Mr. Godot. The tramps hope that Godot (an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place, and memory are blurred and meaning is where you find it) holds the key to changing their lives for the better, but instead, two eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other’s rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.
Tickets for this production are available for the cost of $18 for Adults, $15 for Senior, Military, and Student, and $10 for Youth 16 and under.
