Lucky’s Speech in Waiting for Godot
As I haven’t posted anything on here for a while (doesn’t time fly!) I thought I’d post this clip from the 2001 film of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. I’ve actually been learning this speech, not that I really see myself reeling this is off in an audition (unless it’s for the part of Lucky of course), but more just to see if I could actually memorise it. The speech itself is printed entirely without any punctuation, and all the versions I find online have slight descrepancies with the printed text, but Stephen Brennan gets it bang on here.
Strangely, I have a vivid memory of being shown this clip on a video at school… even though I’d comfortably left school by 2001.
