Beckett's All That Fall - Wilton's Music Hall
Out of Joint theatre company will present All That Fall by Samuel Beckett at Wilton's Music Hall, directed by Max Stafford Clark, which will run from 22 March to 9 April 2016, with an official opening on 24 March 2016.
Beckett's one-act radio play has been adapted for live performance, with audiences being blindfolded as the cast move about them in the auditorium, their voices joined by a surround-sound design by Dyfan Jones.
"A bawdy and unpredictable tale, it charts the faltering journey of elderly Maddy Rooney as she ventures along a country road to surprise her blind husband at the train station for his birthday treat. Along the way she is helped and hindered by a series of colourful characters; but when she is united with her husband, she is confronted with a strange and harrowing event that makes him seem a stranger."
First broadcast in 1957 All That Fall is one of Beckett’s most accessible and naturalistic plays and was the first time Beckett centred his work on a female protagonist.
The cast will feature Brid Brennan, Killian Burke, Frank Laverty, Gary Lilburn and Ciaran McIntyre with a full cast to be announced.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
