Beckett Women: An Evening of Shorts by Samuel Beckett

Four women reveal themselves, their histories written on the body. Compulsion and Embarrassment wander the garden in their socks. They rage at the humdrum, giggle about dying, fall down and up. Truth seeps between words and we stumble upon Beckett secrets that have been hiding in the open all along.

This collection of Beckett shorts unfolds as an expansion of bodies and a contraction of text. Not I is a monologue for a mouth. Footfalls is a dialogue for feet. Come and Go is a tria-logue of hands. And Quad is a silent stalking of four bodies through the void. Beckett Women weaves these four rarely produced pieces together into one world, drawing out resonances and disrupting audience expectations to meet Beckett anew.
