When a cast and crew are close to opening their own rendition of the most famous existential play ever, with the main characters played by hot young guys (instead of old geezers) in their underpants, would you not expect some controversy from the estate of its late playwright?
A representative from the Samuel Beckett estate crashes one dress rehearsal to investigate, and must decide: Will this show go on or not? Hilarity and judgement ensue, making this play about a play into a debate on the limits of adaptation and interpretation.
