NIDA Student Productions: Waiting for Godot

By Samuel Beckett 
By Arrangement with the Licensor, The Samuel Beckett Estate, c/- Curtis Brown (Aust) Pty Ltd
Directed by Susanna Dowling

‘What are you insinuating? That we’ve come to the wrong place?’

One of the major works to come out of the 20th Century, Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot is a timeless masterpiece; a ‘tragicomedy’ known for its many interpretations and depth.

Godot both focuses our attention on the human condition and reflects on the theatrical means used to do so.

Featuring Beckett’s unique and interesting creations Didi, Gogo, Pozzo and Lucky – the existential clowns, everything in Waiting for Godot is a game: a game in order to survive, a game of life and death.

Behold: a balance of joy and despair, of the trivial and the serious.

Featuring NIDA final year BFA Acting and final year BFA Costume, Properties and Objects, Staging, and Technical Theatre and Stage Management students, with students of the MFA Design for Performance.
