Hailed as a brave move to bring Beckett to Waterford’s Theatre Royal, A Taste of Beckett, which opened last Friday evening, didn’t disappoint.

Theatre Royal Artistic Director, Ben Barnes, produces two short masterpieces by one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Samuel Beckett.

Footfalls, performed by Waterford actress Carrie Crowley, is a moving and poetic distillation of the relationship of a mother and daughter evoked by two voices as a figure paces back and forth on a darkened stage.

Krapp's Last Tape, performed by Irish actor and writer Arthur Riordan, is a moving and beautiful evocation of human failure and despair and is Beckett's great study in loneliness and isolation. A man sits in what passes as a study, his only company an old reel to reel tape recorder where he listens to recordings of his younger self and prepares to record what may well be his last tape.

Barnes was delighted to bring “these two plays from the master of the economically expressed drama of the human heart” to one of Ireland’s oldest theatres. “The wonderful acoustics and atmosphere of the Theatre Royal work in tandem to heighten the intensity, desolation, loneliness, confusion and regret experienced by these two conflicted characters.”

A Taste of Beckett, directed by Ben Barnes Theatre Royal Artistic Director is at Theatre Royal Waterford for seven performances ONLY on June 29th & 30th, July 6th, 7th, 13th, 20th & 21st

Time: 8pm. Tickets: €17 / €15 concession. Booking: 051 874402 or http://www.theatreroyal.ie

Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
