“Nothing to be done…”
The show opens when two men, Vladimir and Estragon, who are down on their luck, come to a point on a country road to meet a man named Godot. Estragon struggles to remove his boot from his swollen foot, while Vladimir sees that there is nothing to be done. While waiting, the two come across Pozzo and his man-servant Lucky. As time passes, the two men debate whether it’s worth it to wait for Godot or whether they should leave and come back another day. Through existential questions, the two men explore and weight the risks of life. This tragic-comedy is timeless classic that explores the subtleties of life.
Vladimir: (Age 35-70) He is the sharper thinker of the group. He prides himself on his intelligence.
Estragon: (Age 35- 75) He is seen as slow and struggles with simple things. He relies on Vladimir heavily. May have a limp or something physically wrong with him.
Pozzo: (Ages:35- 75) He is seen as a threatening force and is the owner of Lucky. He is a man who loves luxury and material goods.
Lucky: (Ages 20-75) He is Pozzo’s servant and carries Pozzo’s things around everywhere.
Boy: (Age 10-15) He is the young man who comes and tells Vladimir that Mr. Godot isn’t coming today.
