On Beckett

{{ event.webContent.titleSuffix }}

Sep 13 – Oct 27, 2019

Kirk Douglas Theatre

…a better guide to playing Beckett would be hard to find. And when it comes to the clowning elements, a masterclass is in session.

Tony Award®-winning actor Bill Irwin combines his renowned skills as a master clown and dramatic actor to explore a performer’s relationship to the works of Samuel Beckett, including Waiting for Godot, Texts for Nothing, and more. Irwin’s physical approach to the comic and tragic sides of Beckett’s writing allows audiences to experience his language in surprising new ways. Declared “utterly delightful!” by New York magazine, this playful, intimate, 90-minute showcase is not to be missed!

Masterful… Beckett’s words bloom not just with humor but with poignant emotion.
