Background
Beckett's play was a groundbreaker. His words and characters made the play the most talked about - in fact the expression "waiting for Godot" has become common usage. This play marks an epoch of exploring what is possible in theatre.  Waiting for Godot is possibly one of the most significant plays of our time. - in any case a classic. The performance of these two actors is worth the experience. They are in parts as far as you can possibly get from a Star Trek ship captain of many series and Gandalf himself.

Story
 As two men spending their days together, joking and in many arguments, as they wait through one day after another – waiting for the elusive and increasingly mysterious Godot. The tension is relieved with a combination of music hall, poetry and pristine dialogue.
