Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby

Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby

5 (1) · Fringe Theatre

Following their critically acclaimed sell-out run of Beckett’s Footfalls and Play at The Jack Studio in 2019

Overview

Angel Theatre Company return with three more of his short plays: Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby.

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…
An elderly woman recounts her past, driven by the motion of her rocking chair…

This trio offers a unique insight into the fascinating theatrical world of Samuel Beckett. His 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.

Directly following the performances director John Patterson will host a post show Q & A. This is free of charge and open to all who have booked a ticket for these nights. John will discuss his approach to directing the pieces and offer insight into the complex and fascinating theatrical world of Samuel Beckett. (Please note there are NO post show discussions on Tues 25th, Thurs 27th & Sat 7th.)

Age Recommendation: 14+
