All That Fall by Beckett transfers to Arts 6 to 24 Nov


The radio play by Samuel Beckett All That Fall, which ends its 4 week run at the Jermyn Street Theatre, a small Off West End venue on 3 Nov 2012, transfers to the larger West End Arts Theatre for 23 performances from 6 to 24 Nov 2012.

Directed by Trevor Nunn, the cast includes Eileen Atkins, Michael Gambon, Oliver Barry-Brook, Ruairi Conaghan, Ian Conningham, Catherine Cusack, Aidan Dunlop, Frank Grimes, James Hayes, Gerard Horan.

The work, which has never been seen in London before, charts the journey of old and unwieldy Mrs Rooney as she drags herself towards a railway station on a Saturday lunchtime to meet her blind husband on his way back from the office to guide him home. Along the way she passes the time of day with a man with a dung cart and a man with a bicycle. A third man with a motor-car offers her a lift and a church-struck spinster helps her up the station steps.
