Synopsis: Two wandering tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place and memory are blurred and meaning is where you find it. The tramps hope that Godot will change their lives for the better. Instead, two eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous in this existential masterpiece.

Role Descriptions 

Vladimir - Old enough to be worn out; the more philosophical of the principals

Estragon - As old; the more grounded and child-like of the two

Pozzo - Inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity. His appearance reflects the good life.

Lucky - Pozzo’s slave; he is haggard in comparison to Pozzo. Although Lucky has only one (very long) line, this is a very demanding role.

The Boy - Younger than the others. Sincere, callow.
