Waiting for Godot & Gender -- Unsex Me Here Panel
When a Dutch theater company attempted to stage an all-female production of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot in the '80s, the playwright was furious, banning any Dutch company from producing his plays. Although Beckett's mysterious existential tragicomedy has been the subject of endless theorizing and debate since its premiere in the early '50s, he fought any attempts at gender interpretation. But what about the "offstage" influence women had on the work, on Beckett, and in the world around us? In this Unsex Me Here event from the Shakespeare Theatre Company, a diverse panel of women, including author Lisa Dickey, business leader Annette Gibbs-Skervin, and film producer Carletta S. Hurt, will use this landmark piece of theater to explore gender issues. Don't miss this free event at Sidney Harman Hall in Washington, D.C.
