Narrator: Somewhere in a city an audience is Waiting for Godot.
Simultaneously, in a small theater on the outskirts of the same city the stage is set.
A 30-watt halogen bulb is on in a shade-less lamp. The lamp sits on a battered three-legged coffee table, this is off to stage right. At mid-stage two actors are conversing:
Act I of 15 10-minute acts
Proteus: What do you want to do today?
Godot: I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know...
Godot’s response continues throughout the next 13 acts: I don’t know...
Godot: I don’t know...
Godot: I feel like I am supposed to be somewhere... I don’t know...
