Category:  Drama

Overview: The story of two people waiting for someone who never shows up.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Two men sit by a tree and wait for hours for Godot to show up.  Boring?  Just the opposite.”

Ethan: “Perhaps the most notable performance of this play took place at San Quentin prison in 1957. It was here that this absurdest play moved inmates to tears, because they truly understood…what it is to wait.”
