About the Play

Two men, Vladimir and Estragon, meet near a tree. They converse on 
various topics and reveal that they are waiting there for a man named 
Godot. While they wait, two other men enter. Pozzo is on his way to the 
market to sell his slave, Lucky. He pauses for a while to converse with 
Vladimir and Estragon. Lucky entertains them by dancing and thinking, 
and Pozzo and Lucky leave.

After Pozzo and Lucky leave, a boy enters and tells Vladimir that he is 
a messenger from Godot. He tells Vladimir that Godot will not be coming 
tonight, but that he will surely come tomorrow. Vladimir asks him some 
questions about Godot and the boy departs. After his departure, 
Vladimir and Estragon decide to leave, but they do not move as the 
curtain falls.

The next night, Vladimir and Estragon again meet near the tree to wait 
for Godot. Lucky and Pozzo enter again, but this time Pozzo is blind 
and Lucky is dumb. Pozzo does not remember meeting the two men the 
night before. They leave and Vladimir and Estragon continue to wait.

Shortly after, the boy enters and once again tells Vladimir that Godot 
will not be coming. He insists that he did not speak to Vladimir 
yesterday. After he leaves, Estragon and Vladimir decide to leave, but 
again they do not move as the curtain falls, ending the play.


Vladimir -  One of the two main characters of the play. Estragon calls 
him Didi, and the boy addresses him as Mr. Albert. He seems to be the 
more responsible and mature of the two main characters.

Estragon -  The second of the two main characters. Vladimir calls him 
Gogo. He seems weak and helpless, always looking for Vladimir's 
protection. He also has a poor memory, as Vladimir has to remind him in 
the second act of the events that happened the previous night.

Pozzo -  He passes by the spot where Vladimir and Estragon are waiting 
and provides a diversion. In the second act, he is blind and does not 
remember meeting Vladimir and Estragon the night before.

Lucky -  Pozzo's slave, who carries Pozzo's bags and stool. In Act I, 
he entertains by dancing and thinking. However, in Act II, he is dumb.

Boy -  He appears at the end of each act to inform Vladimir that Godot 
will not be coming that night. In the second act, he insists that he 
was not there the previous night.

Godot -  The man for whom Vladimir and Estragon wait unendingly. Godot 
never appears in the play. His name are character are often thought to 
refer to God, changing the play's title and subject to Waiting for
