Esperando a Godot (1997)

'Remark that I might just as well have been in his shoes and he in mine. If chance had not willed otherwise': Pozzo's line from Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot gives the audience clues through which to decipher the coordinates of Rosa Luisa Márquez rendition of this Theater of the Absurd masterpiece. Adapted to the Puerto Rican reality, this play places the audience onstage, witnessing the games, confrontations and exchanges between homeless characters that unfold, double, repeat and change hats under a tree made up of recycled materials and junk, haunted by a an eerie sea of empty theater seats, torn between hope and despair waiting.
