WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Direct from the Beckett Festival in Northern Ireland...New Yiddish Rep's groundbreaking production returns to New York as part of the 2014 Origin's 1st Irish Festival. 12 performances only!
If this production doesn't render the play in its true language of origin (as some have claimed), the production does, with haunting resonance, return "Godot" to the historical context of post WW II Europe in which Beckett was writing, in effect tracing it to its elemental moral and social roots. Beckett, a member of the French Resistance, wrote the play in French in '48-'49.
