Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett( Visual )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two men in a timeless setting are engaged in a perpetual, pointless entertainment that parodies the human condition. Beckett's characters are often in pairs tied together by need, like master and slave or husband and wife. The entity of Godot can be seen as any form of transcendental meaning or purpose to life and it is significant that this entity is never manifested. Vladimir and Estragon are entertained as they wait by Pozzo and Lucky and storytelling becomes a means of passing time. Uncertainty is clearly the only certainty and the banal, everyday language in their exchanges takes on a universal significance. Beckett once said "All that matters is the laugh and the tear" and it is these extreme manifestations of emotion that he uses to portray the human condition. Beckett's best known play, Waiting for Godot is a finely wrought tragicomedy exploring the battle between the futility of life and the fundamental human desire to survive

Endgame by Samuel Beckett( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Endgame is the term used to describe an ending in chess where the outcome is already known. Beckett, an avid chess fan, saw the parallel between the chess endgame and the final stages of life. He realized that death is the final outcome and that regardless of how a person plays the game, he or she will die. The imagery of chess is presented in the play through Clov and Hamm who are red and Nagg and Nell who are white. The title articulates a powerful drama of waiting as reality and as a metaphor for infinity. The stage setting is integral to the play as it is seen as a skull where the two windows on the back wall form the eye sockets of this skull, and the characters symbolize the brain and memory. The set becomes a metaphor for an ageing and decaying mind. The subject of Endgame is whether Clov will leave Hamm. Their relationship, which alternates between slave/master and son/father, is also a mutually beneficial one. Hamm provides food and shelter, whereas Clov provides legs and eyesight. Part of the problem with Clov leaving is that doing so is an act of suicide. If he leaves Hamm, he will not have any food, and without someone to feed him, Hamm will die as well. Beckett highlights one theme in particular, that of "finishing". This theme is presented right in the opening moments, with Clov saying, "Finished, it's finished, nearly finished, it must be finished." Hamm later echoes this same theme. However, what soon becomes clear is that things remain unfinished; where actually finishing something represents death. Death as a final ending is absent from the plays. The characters must go on waiting for what will never come, declining into old age and senility, becoming helpless, dependent and decrepit. Daily rituals are performed ad nauseum "Why this farce, day after day" but are a necessity to satisfy the need for affirmation of existence. It is interesting and important that Nell dies. Although Hamm asks Clov to kill him he is unable perform the act. Thus Nell is the only character able to escape this world

Footfalls( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pacing repetitively, a daughter tends to her sick mother. In four scenes, the play dramatizes a slow fade to impalpability. What emerges is the burden of caring, the love that sustains that burden and what that love costs. In the first scene, May wrapped in tatters paces back and forth engaging in dialogue with the disembodied voice of her mother. In the second scene May's voice is subsumed into the disembodied voice of her mother who speaks for both. May continues to pace slower still as the play progresses, her footfalls magnified by the low visibility on stage, delivering a colloquy of ghosts until the fourth scene, even dimmer, has no trace of May. The attempts to describe the life or absence of a life of a shadowy figure in grey tatters are juxtaposed with the repetitive motion of the footfalls. There is an explicit relationship between the verbal text and the non-verbal elements or patterns of performance
