A work-shy writer discovers a Victorian man living in the wall of his flat. Everyone’s pretty surprised. Adjustments need to be made.
Can the strange visitor unlock his hopeless career? His flagging relationship? A story buried in these walls for over a century? (Doubt it. Maybe. Yes.)
Contains jokes, songs, banging on recycling boxes, a talking fridge…
Samuel Beckett’s landmark one-woman piece Not I returns to the Royal Court Theatre, 40 years after its UK premiere.
Beckett’s 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.
A new play about stories.
A young entrepreneur sets out on a quest for wealth with priceless ambition and a purse of gold.
A fable of free market economics and cut-throat capitalism.
