★★★★★ “Siân Phillips is riveting… piercingly compelling… stunningly performed” The Times

A rocking chair creaks. Footsteps echo down a corridor, tracing and retracing the same path. An old woman hears a voice from beyond – a voice that sounds eerily like her own. 

In this pair of miniature masterpieces, Beckett dazzlingly explores his obsessions with age, memory, and the passing of time.

Following Beckett’s All That Fall and the Beckett Triple Bill, Jermyn Street Theatre uncovers two more of Samuel Beckett ’s rarely performed gems.

Multi award-winning Dame Siân Phillips (I, Claudius, Under Milk Wood) and Charlotte Emmerson (Food of Love, The Cherry Orchard) are directed by Richard Beecham in an unmissable double bill.

★★★★ “Perfectly cast… Siân Phillips and Charlotte Emmerson’s performances make this deeply affecting” Guardian
★★★★ “Siân Philips has a voice that can worm its way into your bones… a superb performance” Daily Telegraph
★★★★ “At times I closed my eyes just to enjoy the richness of it” The Stage
★★★★ “A beautiful pairing” Broadway World
