Ante Beckett


Exit Does Theatre (Northern Ireland)

This original one-act comedy by Joel Smith reflects Samuel Beckett's work and themes. It centres on a single Beckett-type character, dealing with his life in the present, within his mother’s womb, and the one he is preparing to face in the vast world beyond. Apart from his struggles with the idea of his existence, he is forced to confront the overbearing presence of his mother and the constant clamour of the outside world, of which he is soon to be part of. Written and performed in the playful rhythm and style that is synonymous with Beckett's plays.
