Samuel Beckett’s All That Fall at Wilton’s Music Hall.
Samuel Beckett described his radio plays as “coming out of the dark”.
Max Stafford-Clark directs an extraordinarily atmospheric theatrical experience.
Audience members are blindfolded into darkness for a rare live production of Beckett’s first radio play.
Inspired by memories of Samuel Beckett’s native Foxrock, All That Fall is a playful, enjoyable and mysterious journey of words and sounds.
In 2015, All That Fall was chosen by Guardian’s chief critic, Michael Billington, for his book The 101 Greatest Plays.
All That Fall runs from 22 March 2016 until 9 April 2016 at Wilton’s Music Hall
It is a play about faltering journeys: an elderly woman’s slow walk to a country station to meet her husband on his birthday, and the people who help and hinder her; her blind husband’s train ride home – and the strange event that delays it, keeping them apart in more ways than one.
Tony Award-winner Bríd Brennan will play the unforgettable Maddy Rooney – crotchety and funny, self pitying and self-important, and defiant in her small, strained act of love.
★★★★ “An experience to be cherished” The Times
★★★★ “An ingenious, evocative production” Financial Times
★★★★ “The wonderful Bríd Brennan” Evening Standard
★★★★ “Beckett’s best play… In Stafford-Clark’s production, with its diverse aural decor and voices looming at us out of the dark, it comes to vivid life” The Guardian
Running Time: 1 hour 15 minutes Please Note: Blindfolds (provided) must be worn and actors move amongst the audience.
