We are all born mad. Some remain so.

WAITING FOR GODOT by Samuel Beckett
June 11 – 13, 18 – 20 & 25-26

Vladimir: That passed the time.
Estragon: It would have passed in any case.
Vladimir: Yes, but not so rapidly.

Glacity Theatre Collective is pleased to present Samuel Beckett’s great existential tragicomedy, Waiting for Godot for three weekends in June in Studio A at the Valentine Theatre. The subject of intense debate and conjecture over the years, Godot has never lacked for interpretations. It has been performed in South Africa with mixed race actors during apartheid, in prisons, in churches, on Broadway with Steve Martin and Robin Williams and in small black box theatres (like our own Studio A). It has been seen as an allegory for the cold war, a reflection of Jung’s four archetypal personalities, a Christian parable, and a metaphor for the relationship between Ireland and England, to cite just a few approaches. Glacity’s intimate performance space makes this the perfect opportunity to see one of the most acclaimed and controversial plays in Western literature. But hurry, seating is limited!

GTC actors Kevin Hayes and Ben Pryor play Vladimir and Estragon, Dave DeChristopher plays Pozzo and Kevin Barron plays Lucky. The Boy is played by Zachary Safadi. The production team includes GTC Artistic Director Cornel Gabara as director, set design is by James S. Hill, and lighting is by Donald Robert Fox, all three of whom are professors in the Department of Theatre and Film at UT. Senior UT Theatre major Dan Norton is the production stage manager.

Waiting for Godot will open at 8 pm on June 11th in Studio A at The Valentine Theatre, entrance at 410 Adams Street. It continues with 8 pm. performances on June 12 – 13, 18 – 20 and 25 – 26. Doors open one half hour prior to curtain. Studio A features a cash bar for patrons. Ticket prices are $20 and are available in person at The Valentine Theatre box office, online at http://www.valentinetheatre.com/boxoffice.html or by phone at 419.242.2787. Both Sunday evenings (June 13 and 20) will be “Pay What You Can” matinees, and tickets will be available at the door only. Go to www.glacity.org for more info.
