Subtitled 'A tragicomedy in two Acts', and famously described by the Irish critic Vivien Mercier as a play in which 'nothing happens, twice', En attendant Godot was first performed at the Thtre de Babylone in Paris in 1953. It was translated into English by Samuel Beckett, and Waiting for Godot opened at the Arts Theatre in London in 1955. 'Go and see Waiting for Godot. At the worst you will discover a curiosity, a four-leaved clover, a black tulip; at the best something that will securely lodge in a corner of your mind for as long as you live.' Harold Hobson, 7 August 1955 'I told him that if by Godot I had meant God I would have said God, and not Godot. This seemed to disappoint him greatly.' Samuel Beckett, 1955

Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it's awful.' This line from the play was adopted by Jean Anouilh to characterize the first production of Waiting for Godot at the Theatre de Babylone in 1953. He went on to predict that the play would, in time, represent the most important premiere to be staged in Paris for forty years. Nobody acquainted with Beckett's masterly black comedy would now question this prescient recognition of a classic of twentieth-century literature.

Excerpt: Waiting for Godot ( -oh) is an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive. Godot's absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play's premiere. It was voted "the most significant English language play of the 20th century." Waiting for Godot is Beckett's translation of his own original French version, En attendant Godot, and is subtitled (in English only) "a tragicomedy in two acts." The original French text was composed between 9 October 1948 and 29 January 1949. The premiere was on 5 January 1953 in the Theatre de Babylone, Paris. The production was directed by Roger Blin, who also played the role of Pozzo. Waiting for Godot follows two days in the lives of a pair of men who divert themselves while they wait expectantly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive. They claim him as an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognise him were they to see him. To occupy themselves, they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide - anything "to hold the terrible silence at bay." The play opens with the character Estragon struggling to remove his boot from his foot. Estragon eventually gives up, ...

Wie kaum ein anderer Dramatiker hat Samuel Beckett das »Bewußtsein« des 20. Jahrhunderts geprägt. Selbst diejenigen, die kaum eine Zeile von ihm kennen, haben einen »Begriff« von diesem Autor. Denn in Becketts Werken findet dieses Jahrhundert seinen Ausdruck - Endzeit, Aussichtslosigkeit, Pessimismus und die Überzeugung von der Absurdität der menschlichen Existenz. Die drei erfolgreichsten Stücke Becketts erscheinen jetzt in einem Band.
