On Beckett / In Screen
About On Beckett / In Screen
Tony Award winner Bill Irwin can’t escape Samuel Beckett. Two years ago, Irwin took the Irish Rep stage to premiere On Beckett, his award-winning meditation on Samuel Beckett’s works and language, called “captivating…radiant, living theater” in The New York Times. Since then, COVID-19 has upended daily life worldwide, and live theatre is on hold as venues stand empty.
In this time of anxiety and loss, Irwin revisits the words of Samuel Beckett, and returns alone to the Irish Rep digital stage, to bring us On Beckett / In Screen, a new meditation filmed for our current times, to be broadcast for one week only, Nov 17 - 22, from Irish Rep Online, “the leader in streaming theater productions” (Theatermania)
