Samuel Beckett’s

Waiting for Godot

January 31 - February 18, 2018

Two road-weary men arrive at a tree in the middle of nowhere to await the arrival of Godot. They cannot agree on when they were to meet him, or exactly where or why, but both know they cannot leave until they meet Godot. As unexpected visitors pass by, the men wonder how long they have been waiting and whether Godot will ever come. A tragicomedy in two acts, this humorous, disturbing, thrilling existential and absurdist masterpiece by Samuel Beckett is noted by the National Theatre in England as “the most significant English language play of the 20th century.”

A People’s Light Founding Artist and one of Philadelphia’s great theatre directors, Ken Marini makes his Quintessence debut.
