Description

Major New Contribution to the Theatre of The Absurd!
We are done “Waiting For Godot”!

A full length 4 Act theater script, ‘GO -21st Century Existentialism In An Absurdist Theme’ is based on the landmark play by Samuel Beckett ‘Waiting For Godot’.

In the intervening 60+ years since ‘Waiting For Godot’ was first produced, many advances in existential thought have occurred. Whereas Beckett’s two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, remained locked and alone within their separate but shared solitudes, today the frontiers of the mind encompass much wider spectrums. We are now, in a phrase, ‘open at the top.’ We are now open to transcendent communications with transcendent realities. A condition familiar in the orient, it is one which we in the occident lost contact with centuries ago.

‘GO’ is peppered with wit, humor and colorful imagery; the dialogue exchanges are swift and crisp. A great many themes and ideas are interwoven throughout the play and do not find their climaxes until later in it. It can be said of ‘GO’ that it is both entertaining and edifying.

A serious exploration of contemporary existential angst, ‘GO’ is truly a modern contribution to the theatre of the absurd, a global genre transcending cultural lines!
