Chers Amis,
I’ve recently had word of two theatrical presentations which may well be of interest to our members ….

En Attendant Godot ..... by the shores of Lough Erne?
The opening presentation in Happy Days: the 3rd International Beckett Festival, taking place in Enniskillen from Thursday 31 July – Sunday 10 August 2014will be a double presentation of Samuel Beckett’s classic “En Attendant Godot” (Waiting for Godot) in two separate productions, one in French and one in Yiddish.
En Attendant Godot will be presented by Theatre NoNo, based in Marseilles, one of the most exciting new French theatre groups, steeped in the clown and cabaret tradition. This will be the first ever professional presentation of En Attendant Godot in Irelandsince its premiere in Paris in 1953.
En Attendant Godot will be performed at the Ardhowen Theatre on 31st July and 1st & 2nd August.
