“Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful!”
These lines from Samuel Beckett’s absurdist play Waiting for Godot were quickly taken up by outraged critics. When the play was first performed in Paris in 1953 it was derided. However, in the intervening half-century Godot has taken on iconic status as the play which redefined modern theatre.
Two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, pass their days waiting for the mysterious Godot who promises to improve and explain their lives. On a bare stage featuring just a tree and a mound our two protagonists grapple with their lot and with human existence, waiting each day for their salvation to come.
Common Ground Theatre Company has been performing in Lincoln for almost two decades. They bring this timeless masterpiece to the intimate stage in The Room Upstairs.
