A fun, surprising trek through the works of one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century.
In On Beckett, world renowned actor and clown Bill Irwin explores a performer’s relationship to the works of legendary playwright Samuel Beckett—widely regarded as one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century—incorporating passages from various works by the Irish writer, including Waiting for Godot, Texts for Nothing, and Watt. Irwin’s physical approach to the comic and tragic sides of Beckett’s writing invites audiences to experience the writer’s language as they never have before. This intimate, fun-filled performance has been called “utterly delightful!” by New York magazine and “captivating…radiant, living theater” by the New York Times.
