AVAILABLE ROLES (All male):
VLADIMIR (DIDI) – The more responsible and mature of the two wandering tramps.
ESTRAGON (GOGO) – Seems weak and helpless, always looking for Vladimir’s protection. He also has a poor memory.
POZZO – A wealthy and large passerby.
LUCKY – Pozzo’s slave, who carries Pozzo’s bags and stool.
BOY – A child, supposedly in the employ of Mr. Godot.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
The NY World-Telegram describes: “GODOT cannot be compared to any other theater work, because its purpose is so different. Two dilapidated bums fill their days as painlessly as they can. They wait for Godot, a personage who will explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it. They are resourceful, with quarrels and their dependence on each other, as children are. They pass the time ‘which would have passed anyway.’ A brutal man of means comes by, leading a weakling slave who does his bidding like a mechanical doll. Later on he comes back, blind, and his slave is mute, but the relationship is unchanged. Every day a child comes from the unknown Godot, and evasively puts the big arrival off until tomorrow…It is a tragic view. Yet, in performance, most of it is brilliant, bitter comedy…It is a portrait of the dogged resilience of a man’s spirit in the face of little hope.”
