Dead Centre and Gate Theatre, Ireland

Beckett's Room

by Dead Centre with Mark O'Halloran

A play without performers, Beckett's Room tells the story of the apartment in Paris where Samuel Beckett lived with his partner Suzanne during the Second World War. A story of Art and Resistance, the audience listen through headphones and gaze upon a spectacle of absence - the absence of bodies on stage focuses us more intently on their stories, on the world changing around us, and changed by us.

From the makers of LIPPY, Chekhov’s First Play and Hamnet, this is the biography of a room, and an invitation to bear witness to a world as it disappears.


Supported by the Goethe-Institut Irland.
