Waiting for Godot
An audience participation reading
Participate in two ways—either by reading a selected part or by being a part of the listening audience. Either way, we promise it will be lots of fun!
After the reading, we will view a few clips from a filmed performance of the play.
Scripts will be available at the library. Parts will be assigned at the reading.
Snacks provided by Friends of the Fort Bragg Library
An absurdist play in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. They claim he's an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognize him when they do see him. To occupy the time they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide -- anything "to hold the terrible silence at bay". Throughout the play, the audience may encounter religious, philosophical, classical, psychoanalytical, biographical, and especially wartime references.
