Waiting for Godot
August 24 @ 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 4, 2022
Vladimir and Estragon wait on a deserted country road to meet a person named Godot. Killing time with hat tricks and half-remembered stories, they dawdle through the play that has been called one of the greatest dramas of the 20th century.
In Samuel Beckett’s absurd, anarchic world, life is vaudeville and tragedy, philosophy and confusion, all woven together with the playwright’s blend of poetry and humor.
The play will run August 19 to September 4 at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center — 36 Linden St., Pittsfield.

Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
