Running time: 2 hr, 30 min with intermission
A lonely tree at the junction of a dirt road, on a day indistinguishable from any other day, two vagabond souls anxiously wait for their appointed meeting. They bicker, wheedle, tease, ponder, wonder, and hold fast to anything that will give them cause to live until the next day. Samuel Beckett introduced us to Vladimir and Estragon when the world lived in fear of nuclear annihilation. Since then, these two clowns, as well as their fellow travelers Pozzo and Lucky, have helped us take one falteringly-dangerous step after another into an unknown future.

Seattle Shakespeare Company is a year-round, professional, classical theatre. The company’s growing success stems from a deep belief in the power and vibrancy of the time-tested words and ideas of Shakespeare and other classical playwrights along with a commitment to artistic excellence on stage. The results have been provocative performances that both challenge and delight audiences while fostering an appreciation for great stage works. Their programs, which include indoor performances, free outdoor productions, regional tours, educator and youth programs - reach across barriers of income, geography, and education to bring classical theatre to Washington State.
