Waiting for Godot is a tragicomedy in two acts.  WAMS senior Maggie Johnsen states in her online study guide:  “My conclusion – and advice to you – is that it's better to not label Godot. To do so effectively limits the scope of the play and possibly leads to far-fetched interpretations. It is Godot's anonymity which makes this play timeless, universal. The identity of Godot is inconsequential to the play compared to his absence. Godot, who or whatever he may be, is a vehicle for the real subject matter of this play – waiting.”  Her study guide may be viewed at:  http://www.waterbury.k12.ct.us/wam/site/files/waitingforgodotstudyguide.pdf
