The award-winning Jaffa Theatre – A Stage for Arab Hebrew Culture – was founded in 1998 in the Old City of Jaffa in southern Tel Aviv. The theatre creates a unique theatrical language with and for the rich human and cultural fabric of Jaffa.

On a highway somewhere in the world, two vagabonds await the mysterious Godot to redeem them. Performed in Hebrew and Arabic by two Arab and two Jewish actors, Jaffa Theatre’s minimalist staging of Samuel Beckett’s groundbreaking modern, tragi-comic play is hailed by critics as a “brilliant,” “a “masterpiece,” and “an artistic mirror” to contemporary Israeli society.
