“Estragon: We always find something, eh Didi, to give us the impression we exist?
Vladimir: Yes, yes, we're magicians.”
Vladimir fusses with his hat. Estragon struggles with his boots. Sitting under a tree on a lonely road, they argue and make up, perform vaudeville routines, contemplate suicide, eat a radish and wait for Godot. Somehow, within this simple plot, Samuel Beckett‘s great tragicomedy explores the most profound questions of human existence. Described as “one of the most noble and moving plays of the twentieth century…suffused with tenderness for the whole human perplexity,” Godot celebrates the human spirit’s ability to persevere.
