Samuel Beckett Trilogy: Exclusive Opportunity for ASF Members

ASF Members and Friends can enjoy special ticket pricing for the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts’ upcoming production of “Samuel Beckett Trilogy: Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby” on April 13-17. 

In Walter Asmus’ critically-acclaimed staging of three one-woman plays by Samuel Beckett, Irish actor Lisa Dwan masterfully triangulates the existential void.

In Not I, a woman—reduced to a mere mouth, suspended in total darkness—seeks solace in a blisteringly paced stream of her own broken speech. In Footfalls, a tattered soul, drained of life, paces relentlessly outside her dying mother’s bedroom. And in Rockaby, a woman slowly withdraws from the world, rocked to eternal sleep in her mother’s chair.

This production drew ecstatic reviews at BAM in 2014, Royal Court Theatre and in the West End.

The astonishing actress Lisa Dwan doesn’t just uncover layers; she digs all the way to the void beneath them. – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
