BECKETT(S) focused on the work on Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), certainly one of the most innovative and influential playwrights of the 20th century.
As the title indicates, we staged a number of Beckett’s works, making the evening a small Beckett festival.
THE EVENING ALLOWED YOU TO EXPERIENCE BECKETT’S WORK IN TWO DIFFERENT WAYS!
In Part One, eight of his short plays – Footfalls, Rockaby, Play, Not I, Come and Go, Cascando, What Where, and Catastrophe – were staged in spaces located throughout Fir Acres Theatre. It was a walk-through experience, somewhere between a museum tour, a haunted house, and installation art.
In Part Two, audience members filed into the main stage auditorium for a more conventional, sit-down performance of Endgame and Act Without Words.
