Production Overview

The original text of this masterpiece was written in French between 1948 and 1949. Later, Beckett himself translated his work in English. The play was first adapted for stage in 1953 and it premiered at the Théâtre de Babylone in Paris. Waiting for Godot made its Broadway debut in 1956 which spawned various Off-Broadway productions in the following years. From 1971-2006, the show opened for a number of times and remained equally popular with the audiences.


In 2009, it once again hit the Broadway stage. Produced by the Roundabout Theatre, the new production of the play featured Bill Irwin and Nathan Lane. It gathered raving reviews from the critics and was nominated for three Tony Awards. 2013 marks the latest revival of the play where it will be performed on Broadway this fall.


Cast and Creative Lads

Waiting for Godot is written by one of the most influential novelists and playwrights of the 20th Century, Samuel Beckett. Beckett is a Nobel Prize winner writer whose insightful repertoire includes acclaimed works such as Happy Days, End Game, Krapp’s Last Tape, Molly and The Unnamable. The current production is directed by the theater genius Sean Mathias. He is famous for his award-winning projects like Design for Living, Talking Heads, Les Parents terribles and Uncle Vanya.

The Plot

Besides being a tragicomedy of two acts, Waiting for Godot has lots of philosophical, social and political subtexts. The play sheds light on the lives of two travelers through humor and seriousness as they meet each other on the country road near a tree.

Longing, frustration and chase are beautifully presented in one of the most revealing works of Beckett.
