WATCHING the Couzens En-'
semble Theater (CET) pro-
duction of Samuel Beckett's
Waiting for Godot is like read-!
ing an unfinished murder mys-
tery. It leaves you wondering,
even if you're not sure what
Godot is a tragicomedy, an
optimistic outlook on the futili-
ty of man's existence. Emotions'
are brought down to their purest
form, exemplifying a starkness'
of feeling which is reflected in1
the language, the acting, and!
the setting of the play.
BUT THE PLAY has humor,
and perhaps that's what makes
it enduring (it was first intro-!
duced in 1952, and has received '
countless productions since).I
Ranging from dry linguistic wit
to bald vaudeville, the cliches'
work upon the barrenness of
the script to produce a unique
kind of freshness.
The acting was impressive for'
the most part, but lacked com-
passion. Jan Marks as Gogo and
Charles Van Boven as Didi each
displayed technical competence
and elan. In their characters lay
the only true sympathy one man-
aged to feel for the play - the'
scenes where, for example, Didi
and Gogo embrace each other,
symbolizing at once the kindred,
spirit of man and the idea that.,
friendship is, at base, an alli-
ance against the world.
Their neat circumscribed
world, a world where living isn't'
being but merely waiting, is in-
truded upon by two strangers,
Pozzo, a slavedriver (Robert
Shalwitz), and Lucky Steven '
Borkan), his slave.
POZZO, the grandiose tyrant,
was played to. the hilt with an
hyperbole that encompassed un-
derstanding. And this was no:
more displayed than in the
scene where he loses his watch,a
his pipe, and his atomizer, and'
thence become helpless, a de-
posed and stripped man. Shal- I

perceiving the base of the play
to be this noncomprehendingI
but accepting view of life. The
main problem he had was in
the blocking, and that due to'
the strange shape of the room
with which he was working.
The play came off as a bit
of a tennis match, as the stage
was too elongated for the ac-
tion of the play. Otherwise, he

Some of the mood of the play
was dissipated due to various
technical difficulties, yet the ac-
tors were able to camouflage
this flaw sufficiently until the
crew regained composure.
Waiting for Godot is a play
about life and people, and in an;
immensely powerful vehicle.
And but for a few flaws, the
CET production was worth the
time invested.
