Beckett Trilogy transfers from Royal Court to Duchess
Beckett Trilogy - Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby - transfers from the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs to the Duchess Theatre, from 3 to 15 Feb 2014.

Directed by Walter Asmus and starring Lisa Dwan, produced by The Royal Court Theatre and Mighty Mouth.

Rockaby explores loneliness and features a prematurely old woman dressed in an evening gown, sitting on a wooden rocking chair that appears to rock of its own accord. Footfalls features the distant voice of 'Mother' and May who paces back and forth like a metronome, on a bare strip of floor.
