    Waiting for Godot

    Counter-Productions Theatre Company begins its 2017/2018 season with Samuel Beckett’s absurdist comedic masterpiece, Waiting for Godot. The play tells the story of two world-weary men, Vladimir and Estragon, as they linger on a barren roadside, awaiting the arrival of the mysterious Godot. It’s not clear why they wait for him, although they seek an answer to an unspoken question.  They’d rather not be there. They want to move on. Still they wait. And wait. And wait.

    “When I first read Waiting for Godot for a college Intro to Theater class a couple of decades ago,” reflects Director Valerie Remillard, “it made no sense to me. Unlike the plays of Ibsen, Shaw and Miller, whom I had been reading voluntarily since I was twelve, there was no traditional story line to this piece.  I rejected it instantly. It made me mad. Infected me.... I couldn't stop thinking about it. “
