About the Play

Many, oh so many people say, “Well what is it all about?”
You have to know something about Beckett to begin to understand. But we feel it is too true an epitaph to most of us as we run life’s journey. Do we just fill in time; are we always waiting for something, without doing too much about trying to help ourselves, rather than wallow in “what might have been” and righteous self-pity.
