Waiting (a fools for tragedy production)

Synopsis

The setting is the Theatre de Babylone in Paris – the time is now. Two
actors have received anonymous contracts to perform in a production of
“Waiting for Godot”. They sit and wait for instruction. While they wait
they meet a few other characters responsible in putting the show together.

What ensues is an intimate and real conversation about “Waiting for Godot”,
the concepts of professional theatre, the power of the actor, “method”,
set-construction, and how art works plays through life.

The cast will be a different combination of the 5 or 6 actors employed for
the show every night. The script will be entirely non-descript as to who
these characters are besides what the actor draws from the text. It will
give the small dedicated group an amazing chance to work on a range of
characters – and to work and experience fellow performers using the same
text but making completely different choices. It is not only a show – but
also an exercise in the art of making firm well-executed decisions in
performance.

Each night will be a new and explosively entertaining experience for both
the actors and audience alike. The limited seating will make it a very
touching and intimate slice of drama.
