Product Description

The conversion of this play, from its label as 'avant garde' to that of 'classic' is validated by the seminal nature of its drama. It is unsurpassable as a morality play in a century that never did pinpoint the source of its own implausibility. 61p.

    Beckett’s prime exercise in absurdity shows two characters, desperate for work, waiting in the futile hope of an employer who never materializes. Of particular relevance in today’s struggling economy, we empathize with Vladimir and Estragon as they attempt to navigate through a bleak, vague no-man’s land. They suffer from physical ailments, possible mental degradation and uncertainty about identities. In the end they achieve a kind of pathos as they cling to the only things that are certain—each other. Because of the nature of their struggle and their uncertain setting, this play remains timeless, of resonance in any given age or society where there are always the disenfranchised, the poor and the mentally deficient who are, after all, people like any other.
