A play in which the audience is locked out of the theater? I think I've read every Beckett play, and I'm not sure which one that is.

It's not pronounced Go-DOHT?

I thought that was the right pronounciation, considering Beckett wrote it originally in French IIRC...

If you play Ace Attorney theirs a name that plays of of the correct pronnunciation. Diego Armando. Of course then you have to know correct Spanish Pronunciations.

You have to remember, of course, that Beckett was Irish, and a very difficult aspect of learning French for an Irish person is getting used to the way in which syllables are stressed. In Hiberno-English, stress tends to be placed on the penultimate syllable (meaning we pronounce 'Godot' more like 'GOD-oh' than 'go-DOH'), whilst the distribution tends to be a lot more even in French.
