Breathe is a truncated reworking and post-modern digital reconstruction of Samuel Beckett’s famous one-minute play, Breath. In the original play, a curtain goes up and then basically comes down. Not much else happens. It’s basically an abbreviated version of Waiting for Godot. At less than half the length of the original, Breathe is a much more abbreviated version, and is also not a play. (But don’t let that discourage you from buying a ticket anyway.)
