Reno, NV – After a sixteen month shut down, Brüka Theatre reopens with Samuel Beckett’s Absurdist masterpiece, Waiting for Godot for the 29th season – Onward. This iconic play challenges it’s audiences to confront life’s most difficult questions while searching for meaning in a world in which nothing is certain. Written after witnessing the horrors of WWII, Beckett creates a universe in which his characters face the appalling nature of Man at his most base as they struggle with their sense of self and search for salvation from a god that may not exist. As Horace Walpole said nearly three hundred years ago, “Life is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those that feel ”. Waiting for Godot is a little bit of both and there is nothing to be done except endure what fate has to offer.
THE STORY: Two old friends meet on a deserted road…what happens next is considered a modern masterpiece on the meaning of life.
SHOW TIMES: All Brüka mainstage evening shows now begin at 7:30 PM Matinees begin at 2:00 PM. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain time.
