In the Theatre of the Absurd’s “Waiting for Godot,” two tramps – Estragon (played by Eric Silcott) and Vladimir (Grant Rankin) – meet on a road, beside a tree. They are very happy to see each other, having been separated for an unspecified amount of time. Estragon has a sore foot and has trouble removing his boot. He tells Vladimir that he was beaten the previous evening. The two men remember that they are supposed to wait under a tree on a Saturday for a man named Godot. It appears they do not remember Godot very well, but they think he was going to give them an answer. They cannot remember the question.
