"Eh Joe" by Samuel Beckett at Duke of York's
The Gate Theatre production of Eh Joe, by Samuel Beckett, in a new stage adaptation of the TV play, conceived by Atom Egoyan, will be at the Duke of York's theatre 27 June to 15 July 2006.
Tickets are now on sale!
The play in Dublin last month featured Michael Gambon (who is alone on stage and does not speak), and featured the voice of Penelope Wilton. As I write this I cannot confirm if Michael Gambon will be reprising the role?
Beckett wrote Eh Joe for television, which aired on the BBC in 1966. Eh Joe is 'one man in a room haunted by the voice of a woman who torments him for thinking that he could ever forget her,' said director Atom Egoyan. The television production features a 25-minute camera gesture that slowly moves onto a man's face as a woman's voice talks about his life. Atom Egoyan is staging it with a single actor on stage and a camera in the wings that slowly moves onto his face and projects the image on a screen.
Eh Joe is a very short piece lasting around 30 minutes. There will be two performances each day Tues to Sat at 7pm & 8.30pm.
