WAITING FOR GODOT by Samuel Beckett- December 2009
Directed by Colin Murray. Costume Design by Annie Kaiser, Sound Design by Ailish Duff.
What a fun and limitless show…. really, the challenge is just trying to figure out how one wants to contain the show.
Colin’s idea was that the character’s crossroads meet where communication breaks down. The ‘tree’ was like a radio tower of some past civilization; the stump an old radio/phonograph. Ailish’s AWESOME sound design sounded like radio fading in and out of our conscienceness.
The show was performed in the black box studio theatre, and had audience in all four quadrants of the crossroads.
