Godot Has Come

December 9, 2017

Presented by Why Not Theatre, in association with fu-GEN Theatre Company

Playwright(s): Minoru Betsuyaku

directed by:
K. Kiyama

What would happen if Godot, the mysterious unseen character in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, actually turned up? This is a slapstick comedy – much more comic than the original by Beckett. Godot Has Come is Minoru Betsuyaku’s critical look at what it means to actually experience something – and whether, in our modern context, we can surpass indifference to exist in the present moment.
Performed in Japanese with projected English translations.

“I only hope that larger audiences will have the opportunity to see this play and enjoy the richness of its meanings, hidden in every detail of the staging.”
