  • overview

    Directed by Greg Dean, Jennifer Decker and Jeff Miller, the evening features a series of avant garde shorts by world renowned playwright, Samuel Beckett: NOT I, ROCKABY, COME AND GO, and FOOTFALLS.  These weird and wonderful moments are rarely seen on stage as a series, but a recent production in Hell’s Kitchen earned the praise, “Hauntingly beautiful… these plays are must-see gems” from Theatre Mania, and should not be missed by anyone who is a fan of Beckett or of avant garde theatre. Each of these four plays explores the human condition through the voices of women frozen in a moment of their lives. The New York Times described the shorts best by stating, “each Beckett short is a mordant miniature of a woman’s life, mostly unlived. All of the pieces restrict a woman in some way, reducing her to a gabbling mouth or a pair of creeping feet or a body entombed in a rocking chair.” The co-directed show, featuring Carolyn Johnson, Jenna Morris, Whitney Zangarine, Sally Burtenshaw, Arianna Bermudez, Callina Anderson and Katherine Rinaldi runs about 1 hour, and tickets will be ‘pay as you can’, as is true with all of our full productions.
