"Lisa Dwan excels in Beckett's strange no man's land"

The Guardian

Closed 15 Oct 2016

World premiere

Powerhouse Beckett adaptor Lisa Dwan returns to the literary titan with this brand new monologue exploring these short writings and posing an answer to Text #4's question: "Where would I go, if I could go, who would I be, if I could be, what would I say, if I had a voice, who says this, saying it's me?". Full of Beckett's trademark humour and wit, existential musings, Dwan brings a gravitas to these rarely performed pieces.

Irish actress Dwan first began her career aged 12 dancing opposite Rudolph Nureyev in Coppelia in Dublin and went on to act in television and movies. She first recited Beckett in 2005, returning to his works for the next decade. Now known as a 'Beckett Prodigy', she is one of the best adaptors of his, performing his work around the globe.
