New York City
Bill Irwin has spent a lifetime haunted by Samuel Beckett’s language. In this intimate 90-minute evening, Irwin explores a performer’s relationship to Beckett, mining the physical and verbal skills acquired in his years as a master clown and Tony Award-winning actor. Irwin’s approach to the comic, the tragic, to every side of Beckett’s work — including Waiting for Godot, Texts for Nothing, and more — allow audiences to experience the language in compelling new ways. Whether you’re encountering the Nobel Prize winner’s writing for the first time, or building on a body of Beckett knowledge, this dynamic showcase is not to be missed.
