6 It’s Your Turn!  You and your partner will “reinterpret” your duet for today’s audience. This is to show that a) updating can keep an audience more interested, and b) the themes of Waiting for Godot can still tell us something about modern life.  You may change the dialogue, but NOT TOO MUCH, because a) you must stay true to the original story, and b) you don’t want to have to memorize a whole new script

7 TODAY You and your partner will brainstorm and answer the following questions on a piece of paper, that you will turn in with your name on it. 1) What will be the new setting of your performance  this includes both time (year) and place (anywhere in the universe)? 2) For each character, what is your age and gender ? 3) What props will you need (required to have some)?
