Hood Theatre stages Waiting for Godot

Thursday, October 6, 2011

FREDERICK, Md.—Hood College Theatre's fall production of noted Irish playwright Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" will be performed Nov. 10-12.

The play will be staged in Hood’s Brodbeck Music Hall at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the door beginning 30 minutes before each show. General admission is $10; students and Hood faculty and staff tickets are $5; and Hood students are free.

"Waiting for Godot," originally written in French, premiered in Paris in 1953. The play began Beckett's association with a form of drama known as theatre of the absurd, which abandons traditional plots, characters and actions in favor of seemingly senseless dialogues and event sequences. One of the most important works of the 20th century, and the most famous of example of this form of drama, "Godot" revolutionized theater and influenced generations of dramatists.
