Bono orders a pizza delivery to get back in touch with The Common Man...
In this trippy, award-winning parody of Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot,” the script is flipped as Bono, wracked with guilt over his own success and fear of having lost touch with his working class roots, orders a pizza delivery to his castle in the hopes of conversing with the delivery person about living a “real life.” But Bono’s lifelong U2 bandmate, guitarist The Edge, wants no part of his socio-spiritual experiment and rejects any thought of inviting opinions or judgments on his hard-earned rock star life. Both men struggle with the possible hypocrisies in their practices versus their policies in a funny and surprisingly deep comedy that skewers celebrity culture, blind faith, and pretentious theater while searching for the meaning of art in a hyper-capitalist society.
“This is not the first parody of Beckett’s ‘Waiting For Godot’ I’ve ever seen, but it may be the last because I’m not sure it can get any better than this...” - FringeReview.co.uk

"9 out of 10 - Exceptional Show …a great job translating the thoughts and questions from the original into such a modern day scenario.” - LATheatreBites.com
"Richard Lucas has created a bizarre new genre of post-modern-absurdism... It's nothing short of genius." - Al Rahn, Certified Fringe Reviewer
