The Beckett Trilogy
A gripping evening of remarkable theatre that highlights the humour and humanity of Beckett. In Molloy
the crippled tramp tries to visit his aged mother while not exactly sure where she lives or how to get there. His encounters en route provide some of the funniest and most poignant images in literature. In Malone Dies
, the bedridden Malone tells stories to pass the time before his impending death. Relating the bizarre account of inmates in an asylum his stories build towards a darkly hilarious finale that would leave Quentin Tarentino reeling. The Unnamable
is an effort by an unnamed narrator to finish speaking and find silence when he feels compelled to speak but has nothing to say.
