    which they never show, and time is very rarely mentioned in the play, besides thru very few encounters with Pozzo, and Lucky, and the mention of night and day.

    Beckett employs a double bind to play that is key to the play. As Piero explains “ Estragon is tied to Vladimir, they are both tied to Godot, Lucky is tied to Pozzo, Act 1 is tied to Act 2, and the audience is tied to the performance”.

    us like death, our past and present condition. In his play we're introduced to the offspring of a Monty Python skit and the Three Stooges without Mo, in Vladimir and Estragon as our Carl and Larry in their witty half-witlessness.
