Opening night after party at the Dominion House (DH). Join the cast and crew for a celebration of Paper-Knife’s first production.

 

You can read the book Janine referenced, The Theatre of the Absurd by Martin Esslin, for more information about absurdist theatre and how it got started.

 

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is perhaps the most well-known absurdist play.

Full film version of Waiting for Godot, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wifcyo64n-w

Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen in the Broadway production (2014).

This play is being produced in Ireland, at The Lycem in Edinburgh, London, Brazil, all over the world…

The play also reads very well, if you aren’t able to find a current production to your liking.

 

The University of Windsor Players have produced two classic absurdist plays, but all before 1973: The Bald Soprano (1960-1961) and Waiting for Godot (1971-1972). Cool to have smaller collaborative groups carrying on the absurd act of theatre in the greater Windsor-Detroit area!
