Waiting for Godot


"Godot" is one of the most significant plays of the 20th century and Irish avant-garde playwright Samuel Beckett one of the most influential writers of our time. The Castillo Theatre and the New Yiddish Rep have come together to present this existentialist tragicomedy as it has never been seen before, in a new production performed entirely in Yiddish (with English and Russian supertitles). This production casts a unique light on Godot, as a millennium of Yiddish history and culture echoes hauntingly through Beckett’s minimalist, evocative, and savagely humorous masterpiece. It’s a transformative journey, a glimpse into a world without boundaries, and a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience not to be missed. Presented in Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles.

Translated by Shane Baker
