Written by Samuel Beckett

Directed by David Wheeler

From the program:

WAITING FOR GODOT is the most famous of all the plays Beckett has written. It was first staged in Paris where it ran over three hundred performances. Translated into English by Beckett, it has subsequently been translated into innumerable languages, including Japanese, Swedish and Yugoslavian. No other play has had so great an impact on the modern theatre.
