Godotmania [50-Year Appreciation of Waiting for Godot]

“I heard of the play when it opened in Paris. But I am ashamed to say I did not see it. I had no idea that it would shortly dominate my life….My 16-year-old daughter was baffled by the programme material detailing the play’s controversial history. ‘What on earth is there to understand?’ she said. ‘It’s perfectly clear what it is about. You only have to listen.’ How stupid it seems now that, 50 years ago, people denied that this play was a play.” —Godotmania [50-Year Appreciation of Waiting for Godot]Guardian)
