NHTP Opens Season With WAITING FOR GODOT, 11/9-25
In most of the world’s literature, characters pursue well-defined goals: wealth, power, marriage, love. To Beckett these were just the trivial, external trappings of existence. He concentrated on what he considered the essential aspects of human existence: the fleeting nature of life; time and eternity; the individual’s sense of loneliness and alienation; The Mystery of self. Estragon and Vladimir, the heroes of Waiting for Godot, have only the most fundamental concerns. “Is God watching?” they wonder, and “Does my hat fit?”
NHTP last produced Waiting for Godot over 20 years ago. The current production features NHTP Resident Company Artists Blair Hundertmark, CJ Lewis and Peter Motson, along with James Stewart and 11-year-old Cayden Glenn Wixson. Genevieve Aichele reprises her role as director, with assistant direction by Robin Fowler, costume design by Maura Suter, and lighting/set design by Meghann Beauchamp.
Waiting for Godot is sponsored by Saunders & Silverstein LLC and Dr. Robert & Patricia Hickey.
