Waiting for Godot
June 5-21 (limited dated available)
The Charity Randall Theatre

by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks

Join Didi and Gogo as they wait and wait and wait for Godot. While they wait, they meet Pozzo and Lucky, an odd couple passing through on their way to…? In this simple story of waiting and journeying, all life is captured. Truly, is there anything more wicked than wasted time? This play has influenced works as diverse as Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Christopher Guest’s Waiting for Guffman, and Sesame Street’s Waiting for Elmo, while many have made comparisons to Seinfeld.

Woman and Scarecrow
July 10- August 2 (limited dates available)
Henry Haymann Theatre

by Marina Carr
Directed by Alan Stanford

Will we be brave on the day of our death? Will we be honest? Woman is dying. With quintessentially Irish wit, she and her mysterious companion Scarecrow consider what she leaves behind and what might have been as she faces the mystery of what is to come. Is that Death lurking in the wardrobe? If you liked Margaret Edson’s Wit, try Marina Carr’s lyrical play. Appropriate for ages 18+.
