Abstract: Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot revolutionized the conventional theatre and redefined norms which shaped twentieth century drama. The play launched an absurdist style of writing on the landscape of drama which gave the life of performance to the intellectual existentialist ideals of Soren Aabaye Kierkegaard´s and Jean-Paul Sartre´s philosophy. This research paper analyses the elements of Existentialism with respect to supportive evidence from the play.
