Tulsa's American Theatre Company Presents "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett

Oct 30, 2015

On this edition of ST, we learn about the newest production from Tulsa's own American Theatre Company, "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett. Our guest is Lisa Wilson, who's directing this postmodernist/absurdist classic. The play will be staged from tonight (the 30th) though November 7th at the ATC space in downtown Tulsa near 3rd and Lansing. As noted of this play at the ATC website (where you'll also find more info on tickets and show times): "There they are; a leafless tree on a desolate road, and Vladimir and Estragon, those two homeless men in tattered bowler hats.... 'Godot' has become one of the most important and enigmatic plays of the past fifty years and a cornerstone of twentieth-century drama." Also on today's show, we welcome a new commentator, Jeff Nix, to the StudioTulsa line-up. Jeff's piece is an amusing aside on how reliably unreliable -- if not totally and strangely inconsistent -- certain everyday words and phrases can be.
