Waiting for Godot
Barrington Stage Company (30 Union St., Pittsfield, MA 01201, Pittsfield MA)
Vladimir and Estragon wait on a deserted country road to meet a person named Godot. Killing time with hat tricks and half-remembered stories, they dawdle through the play that has been called one of the greatest dramas of the 20th century.
In Samuel Beckett’s absurd, anarchic world, life is vaudeville and tragedy, philosophy and confusion, all woven together with the playwright’s blend of poetry and humor.
The play will run August 19 to September 4 at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center — 36 Linden St., Pittsfield.
