After watching Samuel Beckett’s classic of the Theatre of the Absurd, “Waiting
for Godot,” one always asks what was Godot actually doing while
Vladimir and Estragon
were waiting for him. The World Premiere of “G ( ) D ( ) T” answers
that intriguing
question.

Godot has decisions to make. How will they ultimately affect the fates
of V and E
(as the new play refers to Vladimir and Estragon)? Godot has an
administrative assistant,
Snook. What role does Snook play in furthering Godot’s objectives?

Oh, yes. The Boy from Beckett’s play turns up in this new work, too.

Nicolaus Mackie, playing Godot, is a British Actor making his debut in the USA.
He has performed over the years in the UK, Australia and India- with
his most recent
stage roles being in “Iphigenia,” “An Ideal Husband,” “Separate
Tables,” and “The
Killing Game.” He is also a graduate of the U.K.’s National Film and
Television School;
a writer; director; producer; and founder of Streetwise Film
Productions Limited.

Tyson Turrou plays Snook. Tyson mesmerized audiences at the MET earlier this
year with his chilling performance as Charles Manson in the acclaimed
play “California
Dreamin’.” Snook will certainly be a change of pace for him.

Also featuring: Joe West and Max Reuther.

This is playwright Steve Gough’s first play. The Welsh writer-director has an
extensive resume in European film, radio and television, including the feature
films “Elenya” (for which he won the Welsh BAFTA Award) and
“Heartland” (starring
Anthony Hopkins and Jane Horrocks). He is also a novelist.

Ilmar Taska directs. He has been a producer, director and/or writer of feature
films including “Thy Kingdom Come,” “Set Point,” “Out of the Cold”
(starring Keith
Carradine and Brian Dennehy), “Back in the U.S.S.R.” (starring Roman
Polanski and
Brian Blessed) and “Candles in the Dark” (starring Alyssa Milano and
Chad Lowe). His
recent stage directing credits include “Power of Love” in London, starring Anna
Winslet; “Lavender Love” (codirected with Odalys Nanin) at the Macha
Theatre in West
Hollywood; and “One Summer Night in Sweden” at the National Theatre in Estonia.
