Comedy/ 4 Characters, 3 men + 1 either gender/ Full Length, Two acts
In a sequel to Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, Godot finally arrives, bringing mankind, in the form of Gogo and Didi, various spiritual, worldly, and mental “answers” to life’s many riddles, while the sinister clown Bozo interferes and tries to win a bet with Godot about the human beings. All is presented in a comic, absurdist manner that is a comment on the theater (“acting,” pleasing audiences, being out of work etc.) as much as on human existence and the duality of nature.
