Following our critically acclaimed sell out run of Samuel Beckett’s Footfalls and Play at The Jack Studio in 2019, we return with three more of his short plays; Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby.
The unique style of Samuel Beckett’s plays revolutionised theatre and secured his place as one of the greatest dramatists of the twentieth century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. Beckett’s plays offer a bleak, yet tragicomic, view of human existence and often explore the futility of life itself. Other notable works include; Waiting for Godot, Krapp’s Last Tape and Happy Days.
A disembodied mouth suspended in mid-air spews out dialogue at ferocious pace...
An autocratic director and his assistant put the finishing touches to their final scene...
A woman recounts her past, driven by the motion of her rocking chair...
