Meramec Theatre Presents "Waiting for Godot" Feb. 16-20

January 28, 2011

Waiting For Godot  
(L-R) STLCC students Brian J. Rolf and
Robby Suozzi in the roles of Vladimir and
Estragon in "Waiting for Godot."

The Meramec Theatre will present "Waiting for Godot," a play by Samuel Beckett, directed by Michelle Rebollo with set design by Darren Thompson.

"Waiting for Godot" runs Feb. 16-19 at 7:30 p.m., and Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. 

"Waiting for Godot" follows two days in the lives of a pair of men who divert themselves while they wait expectantly and unsuccessfully for someone named Godot. They claim him as an acquaintance but, in fact, hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognize him were they to see him.

To occupy themselves, they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide - anything "to hold the terrible silence at bay". They encounter a brutal man with a weakling slave, and a child comes each day from the unknown Godot to evasively put the big arrival off until tomorrow, creating brilliant, bitter comedy that speaks to the dogged resilience of a man’s spirit in the face of little hope.

Admission is free and seating is open. Limited seating available. Audience will be onstage.

For special seating accommodations, call the Theatre Box Office at 314-984-7562 at least two business days prior to performance.
