“A faithful yet innovative interpretation of Waiting for Godot. Those who are unfamiliar to the work will be instantly drawn in by this loving and intricate presentation.”Entertainment Monthly
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 rank 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.
