Following sell-out performances at Wilton’s Music Hall and Bristol Old Vic, Max Stafford-Clark’s acclaimed production of All That Fall by Samuel Beckett will immediately transfer to the West End, playing at the Arts Theatre from 13 April – 14 May.
Originally written for radio, All That Fall is performed to blindfolded theatregoers, who share the space with a cast who perform the play around them, enhanced by a rich 360° sound design by Dyfan Jones.
A funny, chilling and touching journey of words and sounds, All That Fall is one of Beckett’s most naturalistic plays, inspired by boyhood memories of his native Foxrock in Ireland. It is a play about faltering journeys: an old woman sets out to greet her husband at the station on his birthday, only for events to take a deeply unsettling turn.
“All That Fall is my favourite Beckett play, located specifically as it is in rural County Dublin in the mid-50s, and I am delighted that audiences have responded so warmly and clearly enjoyed the immersive experience. It’s a great little play, and we look forward to being back at the Arts Theatre. I’m grateful to them for allowing us to make changes to the seating in order to give audiences a real live, close-up, surround-sound experience.” Max Stafford-Clark, Director, Out of Joint
Tony Award-winner Bríd Brennan plays the unforgettable Maddy Rooney – crotchety and funny, self-pitying and self-important, and defiant in her small, strained act of love. Adrian Dunbar joins the cast as her enigmatic husband. Adrian can currently be seen on TV screens in the hugely popular series ‘Line of Duty’ on BBC Two.
We have a pair of tickets to give away for ‘All That Fall’ at the Arts Theatre in London. All you have to do is to follow us on @Able2uk and RT the relevant posting before 4 May 2016. Good Luck!
