Waiting for Godot qualifies as one of Samuel Beckett’s most famous works. Originally written in French in 1948, Beckett personally translated the play into English. The world premiere was held on January 5, 1953, in the Left Bank Theater of Babylon in Paris. The play’s reputation spread slowly through word of mouth and it soon became quite famous. Other productions around the world rapidly followed. The play initially failed in the United States, likely as a result of being misbilled as “the laugh of four continents.” A subsequent production in New York City was more carefully advertised and garnered some success.
Waiting for Godot are presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
