About this show

ghostcrab presents Beckett Below, four short plays by Samuel Beckett. Audiences descend into a netherworld to commune with the beauty, humor, and power of Beckett. The four short plays are portraits of souls fighting against space and time to find enlightenment, salvation, and peace. In Play, lovers are imprisoned in urns and forced into confession by a beam of light. Two men are prodded into a brief consciousness by a stick in Act Without Words II. That Time relates a man's desperate quest for truth before he must accept oblivion. Finally, in Footfalls, a woman and her mother whisper of sufferings past and present as she paces her life away on a narrow strip of floor.
