Our show is a cinematic adaptation (an academic film production the Beckett Estate approved of) based on a new translation of Samuel Beckett's original unpublished 1948 French manuscript of 'En Attendant Godot' (pre-censorship and theatrical adaptation), giving English speakers a chance for the first time to experience the raw, uncensored, rebellious play as Samuel Beckett originally intended. The themes of this classic play echo throughout today's world, its exploration of poverty has never been presented in the fashion of our upfront and guerrilla adaptation.


In our new adaptation we try to bring to the surface the social themes of Beckett's surreal and minimalistic theatrical play. The work explores the isolation and desperation of poverty. With our film, we incorporate cinema verite footage of New York City (where the story has been set), documenting the recent surge in the homeless community following 2009's Great Recession -- not much of a leap from the Great Depression "bums" that Beckett originally envisioned as his protagonists.
Our adaptation is a Neo-Realist/Comedic/21st-Century take on the infamous play.


We hope you enjoy our little rendition.
