Olivier Award Winner for Best Play “Waiting for Godot” Premieres May 16th through June 2nd at PacRep’s Circle Theatre
CARMEL, CA – PacRep Theatre is excited to present one of the most iconic and significant plays of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, playing May 16th through June 2nd at the Circle Theatre of the Golden Bough Playhouse. Drawing endless interpretations, it crackles with deadpan wit and linguistic invention, as well as offering compelling glimpses into mankind’s existential absurdity.
On a lonely country road, beneath a barren tree, two vagabonds wait for a man named Mr. Godot. As the evening unfolds, a desperate, humorous, and unchanging universe is revealed that has delighted and challenged audiences for decades.
Under the direction of Kenneth Kelleher, the play stars Actors Equity performers Cassidy Brown as Vladimir and Brian Herndon as Estragon. Cassidy Brown was featured in PacRep’s The 39 Steps, God of Carnage, and Comedy of Errors, among others, and Brian Herndon was featured in the title role in PacRep’s Richard II.
The production also features guest artists Cody Moore as Lucky, Larry Welch as Pozzo, and Joseph Cardinale as the boy.
Waiting for Godot will begin performances with two discount previews, Thursday May 16th, and Friday May 17th, opening Saturday May 18th at 7:30 pm, with 2:00 pm matinee on Sunday May 19th. Performances continue Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm, with 2:00 pm Sunday matinees, closing June 2nd, 2019. The Circle Theatre of the Golden Bough Playhouse is located on Casanova Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
