The Heisei Era is passing away. Reiwa begins.
How long have the men been waiting? And will we continue to wait...
The timeless masterpiece of the absurd drama is finally staged!
Junnosuke Tada, who is attracting attention from overseas as well as being the first foreigner to win the East Asia Theater Award for Best Director at Korea's most prestigious East Asia Theater Awards for his Japan-Korea co-produced work Karumegi, will challenge Beckett's masterpiece.
Performed alternately in two versions of different eras!
The main characters, Vladimir and Estragon, are alternately performed in two versions: the Showa/Heisei version in their 60s and the Reiwa version in their 30s. Two groups from different eras speak the same lines in the same stage setting... Please enjoy the difference between the Showa/Heisei version, which has been waiting for Godot, and the Reiwa version, which will continue to wait.
Ask about "waiting" in the absurd modern world!
In today's world where we can be contacted instantly, "waiting" seems like a wasteful act. However, the two are waiting for Godot. Junnosuke Tada cuts into the modern world where absurdist masterpieces are considered comedies!
