Excerpts from a Sep 26, 2007 MCCC press release :
In its utter simplicity, Waiting for Godot is in the classic tradition of French playwriting. However, the play has its own beauty and suggestiveness and makes its own comment on man’s absurd hope and the insignificance of man.The story line revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone — or something — named Godot near a tree on a barren stretch of road The men proceed to inhabit a drama spun from their own consciousness. The purely comic aspect of the play involves traditional routines that come from the entire history of farce, from the Romans and the Italians and the red-nosed clown of the modern circus.
According to the Massachusetts Review, Waiting for Godot was recently voted the most significant English language play of the 20th century in a British Royal National Theatre poll of 800 playwrights, actors, directors and journalists.
