“Waiting for Godot” by Rubber Chicken Theater

DIDI01

Two down-on-their-luck tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, fill their days as painlessly as they can as they wait for someone named Godot to show up. Godot, they believe, will be able to explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it.

“Waiting for Godot” can be interpreted in so many different ways that it has roused audiences to enthusiasm and anger ever since it debuted in France in 1953. (It has been voted the most significant English language play of the 20th century, which is pretty good for a play originally written in French by an Irishman.)

Starring Cracked Egg Improv performers Lawrance Bernabo (who also directs), Ric Stevens, Taylor Martin-Romme, and Ben Cohen. Jake Kmiech from The Marshall School rounds out this talented and demented cast.

Tickets are just $10 and can be reserved by calling (218) 733-7555.

We’re doing the show at the Play Ground in Duluth’s Technology Village. January 7-9 and 14-16 at 7:30pm.

so, um, is this a pretty by the script version or some rubber chicken improv/adaptation deal? Either one would be copacetic but would be good to know beforehand and the write-up and René Magritte-ish photo leaves a little ambiguity, at least for me.

By the script, baby.  Beckett is a pretty good writer.  I don't think we could improve on a classic script like this.  But there's lots of room to come up with comic bits of business for the two tramps, as well as the other characters.  There is a lot of comedy to be found in this script, actually.

What Brian said.  I've directed this script before and people don't realize it's VERY funny.

Back in January 1997 I witnessed an unidentified flying object. It was very thrilling and exciting. I'll never forget it.
