What is it about this cryptic, complicated, circular and strange text that has captivated, and continues to captivate, generation after generation of audiences that don't know anything about it? How was Beckett able to place the single, highly improbable image of Godot in the collective unconscious, one of two travellers beneath the moon in the countryside, where the only thing we can see is a bare tree, and the simple plot of two travellers waiting for someone who will never come? How can it be that this text, with its insurmountable philosophic and literary complexity, a work that completely abandons action, where absolutely nothing happens to the characters, continues to be performed year after year on stages across the world? I have utterly no idea. I’ve got the feeling that Beckett was able to capture some essential part of the human condition and hid it inside the performances of Waiting for Godot. But it's just a feeling, I’m not going to tell you too much. Anyway, our goal isn’t to find answers. It’s to ask these questions again, in the 21st century (Ferran Utzet, director).

This show will be offering the Principal Menut service, a play area for children between the ages of 3 and 12.
There will also be a discussion following the performance, as part of the Principal Plus! programme.
