One of Beckett's most powerful plays is in fact a mime. A man sits in a desert and struggles to reach a flask of water and other objects symbolizing relief or escape, which remain stubbornly out of reach. Yet despite his continual disappointment, he does not give up. What is significant about this play is that Beckett has captured, wordlessly and with great precision, the major concerns and motifs of Waiting for Godot and Endgame. The man learns through frustrating repetitive experience that there is "nothing to be done." There is no escape from the playing area - he is "immediately flung back" when he attempts to enter the wings. Not even suicide or death, the final exit, are available. The things of the world tease him and ultimately abandon him to leave him lying, moving in the Desert.
