Samuel Beckett Re-writes Waiting for Godot for Red Sox

Funny story written by Ossurworld

Saturday, 9 March 2013

A new production of Waiting for Godot will open in Boston, Mass., this April at Fenway Park.

After years of waiting for a more relevant play from Josh Beckett, the Red Sox traded him. Now the Boston theater scene has grown tired of waiting for a well-staged play.

Samuel Beckett has written a new version of his classic play about waiting for someone who never arrives. This time the play will be performed at Fenway Park to standing room crowds.

Now titled Waiting for Ortiz, the play will feature Benny and Dudley Do-Right Farrell discussing the long-anticipated arrival of Big Papi to the lineup.

Media can hardly wait to hear the excuses as Benny and Dudley rationalize why Ortiz has not yet run to first.

A new wrinkle to the classic play will be the theory that Ortiz has absconded with $27million dollars and put it in a bank in the Dominican Republic on a recent trip there.

In the original version of the play, the Red Sox fans wait 86 years for a World Series victory that never arrives. This was deemed a perfect scenario ruined when the Sox won two World Series within a few years.

Now purists are insisting that the Sox must wait for Ortiz for the remainder of the 21st century-or until the next asteroid hits.

Samuel Beckett's scholars are now claiming that the new Beckett play has been inspired by the Mayan calendar, which is still waiting for the world to end.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
