Description


Canadian Premiere
The incomparable Lisa Dwan's powerhouse performance of three of Samuel Beckett's late works, directed by Beckett's long-time collaborator Walter Asmus, played to sold-out houses at the Royal Court Theatre in 2014 then went on to tour throughout the UK and US, receiving rave reviews wherever it was presented.

In Not I, a disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage, delivering a stream of consciousness monologue spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.

Footfalls features May, a woman wrapped in tattered clothing, pacing back and forth like a metronome, on a strip of bare landing outside her dying mother's room.

In Rockaby, a woman dressed in an evening gown sits in a chair that seems to rock of its own accord. Recounting moments from her past, she slowly withdraws from the world.
