Samuel Beckett Trilogy - Royal Court Theatre, Comes to the MAC

A Royal Court Theatre and Lisa Dwan production in association with Cusack Projects Ltd.

Not I/ Footfalls/ Rockaby - three classic plays executed in just one-hour long, rarely performed, piece.

Not I is an intense monologue, set in a pitch-black space lit by a single beam of light. A disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage and delivers a stream of consciousness, spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.

Footfalls tells the moving story of May, a ghostly figure who paces back and forth like a metronome outside her dying mother’s room.

Completing the trilogy is Rockaby – probably the most famous of Beckett’s last works and explores loneliness and loss as a woman sits on her rocking chair recounting moments from her past.

Lisa Dwan performs in this one-woman Beckett trilogy which comes to Belfast following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Royal Court Theatre and in London’s West End.

This performance will be performed in a total blackout.
