About This Show

The title of John Griffin’s new play gives some clue as to its subject matter, yet this is more than a simple updating or reinterpretation. With the dawn of a new century, Griffin’s play addresses a new set of questions and tackles a new set of themes. In Godot Has Left The Building, Griffin’s characters Sebastian and Joe are waiting for someone or something to happen along, not realizing it’s already been there and gone, and really wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. They live in a world where the trappings of modern society exist as nothing more than refuse on the side of the road. They try to amuse themselves and pass the time by playing games with each other and attempting to interact with the few individuals who cross their path, including an old blind man and a misguided performing artist. At the heart of the play lies the question, how far have we actually come as individuals and as a society? Have we found the answers we’ve been looking for, or have we simply stopped asking the questions? For Sebastian and Joe, the answer becomes obvious — it is up to them to change the world. And they’re going to do it… tomorrow.

There will be Sunday matinees on July 18 and August 1 at 2pm.
