“Waiting for Godot” is a classic story, and under the artistic direction of Ken Marini, this tale takes on a twist in its casting that is prime for the changing, diverse world in which we live. The performance features renowned actors Frank X and Johnnie Hobbs.

Tickets for the show can be purchased directly through the Quintessence Theatre Box Office.

Synopsis: Two road-weary men arrive at a tree in the middle of nowhere to await the arrival of Godot. They cannot agree on when they were to meet him, or exactly where or why, but both know they cannot leave until they meet Godot. As unexpected visitors pass by, the men wonder how long they have been waiting and whether Godot will ever come.

Frank X

A tragicomedy in two acts, this humorous, disturbing, thrilling existential and absurdist masterpiece by Samuel Beckett is noted by the National Theatre in England as “the most significant English language play of the 20th century.”

For more information call Quintessence Theatre Group, 7137 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19119; phone: 215-987-4450.

Showtimes: Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018 through Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018.

Showtimes vary. Check their calendar for times..

*During a running of “Waiting for Godot,” The Brothers’ Network will host a live talk-back with the actors. Date TBA.
