Cheap Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby tickets at the Duchess Theatre

 

The Show

Lisa Dwan follows two sell-out runs at the Royal Court Theatre with a limited West End transfer for her one-woman Samuel Beckett trilogy. Much critical and audience acclaim has been visited upon this unique, impassioned and committed performance piece, which retains all its compelling power four decades after it was first performed. 

Lisa will perform Not I alongside two other Beckett classics, Footfalls and Rockaby, directed by Walter Asmus.  

The Story

Beckett's Not I is an intense monologue, set in a pitch black space lit by a single beam of light. A disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage and delivers a stream of consciousness, spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.

Lisa Dwan was tutored in the role by Billie Whitelaw, who originally performed it at Not I's 1973 UK premiere having been coached by Beckett himself. 

Rockaby is probably the most famous of Beckett's late works. It's an exploration of loneliness that features a prematurely old woman dressed in an evening gown, sitting on a wooden rocking chair that appears to rock of its own accord. It was first performed in New York in 1980 starring Billie Whitelaw, then at the National Theatre in 1981.

Footfalls features May, wrapped in tatters, pacing backand forth like a metronome, on a strip of bare landing outside her dying mother's room. It too was first performed by Billie Whitelaw, for whom it was written, at the Royal Court Theatre as part of the 1976 Samuel Beckett Festival, directed by Beckett himself.
