After performing 11 short plays in Beckett on Stage: Silence & Whisper and Beckett on Stage II: Reminiscence & Traces, Alice Theatre Laboratory continues to stage the 12th masterpiece on their exploration of Samuel Beckett's plays.
A play equally significant as Waiting for Godot. British scholar John Pilling regards it as a play that fuels the evolution of the western theatre at the crossroads of Modernism and Post-modernism.
