WAITING is inspired by Samuel Beckett's iconic play, WAITING FOR GODOT. With humor deeply steeped in Latinx culture, and our country's anti-immigrant policies, WAITING explores the meaning-and absurdities-of identity and belonging. This is a shorter, pandemic version of the playwright's full-length play, WAITING FOR GODÍNEZ.

Production Team includes: Matt Richter (production/sound design), Mylette Nora (costume design), Natasha Kaiserman (associate producer), and Letitia Chang (stage manager).

Regular performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 7 PM, in the courtyard of Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave., Los Angeles. It closes on Sunday, August 15, 2021.

Tickets are $30. For reservations go to www.playwrightsarena.org or call 213-925-7631.
