Waiting for Godot - 2015 - Off-Broadway

On a country road, two friends wait for a man named Godot to arrive. Their comical efforts to pass the time parody the human condition, and the everyday language of their exchanges takes on a universal significance.



Gare St Lazare ranks among the foremost interpreters of Beckett's work. They have performed their stage presentations of his prose in over 25 countries across six continents, to great international acclaim.
