Episode Detail: Waiting for Godot - Stage on Screen

“Waiting for Godot,” Samuel Beckett's signature play, staged as part of a “Beckett on Film” series by Irish producers Michael Colgan and Alan Moloney. The 1953 absurdist play concerns two hapless tramps (Barry McGovern, Johnny Murphy) who are waiting for someone named Godot to appear. While they wait, they joke, quarrel and make up; complain about life; consider suicide; and wonder what will happen if the mysterious Godot ever does show up. It's “a parable for the human condition,” says host Jeremy Irons, “an emblematic story of mankind at the mercy of forces beyond its control.” Lucky: Stephen Brennan. Michael Lindsay-Hogg directed.
