Waiting for Godot

by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Ron OJ Parson

Jan 15, 2015 — Feb 15, 2015

3 Stars “Parson is a sophisticated and entertaining director, and this Godot is well worth seeing” -Chicago Tribune

“superb actors with a flair for Beckett’s lean yet poetic language” -Sun Times

On a lonely country road, beneath a barren tree, two vagabonds wait for a man named Mr. Godot. As the evening unfolds, a desperate, humorous, and unchanging universe is revealed that has delighted and challenged audiences for over half a century.

Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson (Seven Guitars) returns to direct this absurdist classic with an all-star cast featuring Court Theatre favorites A.C. Smith, Allen Gilmore, and Alfred Wilson. As elusive as it is illuminating, Waiting for Godot offers a haunting meditation on the meaning of human existence
