About the Performance
Godot Has Come by Minoru Betsuyaku marks the first American tour of Japan’s celebrated professional company Theatre Office Natori presented by UMTAD Dec. 5-6. What would happen if Godot, the mysterious unseen character in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, actually turned up? Written as homage to Beckett, this comic - often slapstick - sequel is performed in Japanese with English translations projected above the stage. K. Kiyama, directs this innovative play by Minoru Betsuyaku, one of Japan’s leading contemporary playwrights. Earning high praise from Tokyo press, and while touring Oslo, Paris, Berlin, Dublin and Eastern Europe, Godot now comes to Minneapolis on its exclusive three-city American tour. Note: Two performances only on the Stoll Thrust stage. Reserve early.
