Meredith Ensemble Theatre will present Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, February 16-21, 2016,  at 7:30 p.m. in Studio Theatre.

In Waiting For Godot, two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other’s rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.

Waiting for Godot is an absurdist play that explores themes of existentialists philosophy. It is considered by many to be “the most significant English language play of the 20th century.”  The sheer emptiness and randomness of the plot causes the audience to wonder if anything is going to happen, and whether there is any meaning in anything in the play – or in life. Join us for this important and groundbreaking play and question your own existence!

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and students. Meredith faculty, staff and students are admitted free of charge. Reservations are recommended at or (919) 760-2840.

Photo shows Victoria Mitchell, '18, theatre dducation major, '18 and Sarah Koop, '17, theatre major.
