In this female homage to Waiting For Godot, two women find themselves trapped in an existential everywhere. Instead of an endless wait for an absent figure, however, Sophie and Kiki embark on an eternal search for their little lost goat, Biquette. The pair is fated to travel always together -- gorging on profiteroles, discussing the merits of a festival of vomiting donkeys, and arguing over whether it is worse to be condemned to stay in one place or to travel your entire life. Utilizing repetition, shadow puppets, slapstick, and mistranslation, Fat Beckett is a clever interrogation of the absurdities of human existence.
