Waiting for Godot at the Gillioz

The Gillioz Theatre, in conjunction with Poor Thespian Productions, presents the final weekend of Samuel Beckett's landmark play "Waiting for Godot," the tragicomedy about two men waiting for the arrival of the mysterious Godot. They discuss why they were put on earth, and try to figure out if there is SOME point to their existence, while waiting for Godot to get there and--hopefully--provide the answers. According to Artistic Director Jon Herbert, Poort Thespian Productions is dedicated to providing quality, truthful, and affordable theatre, based on the precepts outlined by Jerzy Grotowski in his book "Towards a Poor Theatre." "Poor" or "minimalist" theatre allows for true character development, and the development of a meaningful relationship between actors and audience, without the need for flashy or lavish sets. The company plans to present a wide variety of modern classic theatre. Tickets are available for $5 at the Gillioz Theatre box office, 863-9491.
