Our production of All That Fall played at the International Beckett Festival in Enniskillen, Bristol Old Vic and the iconic Wilton’s Music Hall before transferring to London’s West End. It is performed to blindfolded audiences by actors who move about them, enhanced by a remarkable surround-sound design.

Samuel Beckett described his radio plays as “coming out of the dark”. Now, internationally acclaimed director Max Stafford-Clark takes blindfolded audiences literally into darkness, for a rare live production of Beckett’s first radio play, featuring a 360° sound design.
A funny, chilling and touching journey of words and sounds, this production comes to the West End following sell-out performances at Wilton’s Music Hall and Bristol Old Vic.
All That Fall is one of Beckett’s most naturalistic plays, inspired by boyhood memories of his native Foxrock in Ireland. It is a play about faltering journeys: an old woman sets out to greet her husband at the station on his birthday, only for events to take a deeply unsettling turn…
Tony Award-winner Bríd Brennan (“wonderful” – Evening Standard) plays the unforgettable Maddy Rooney – crotchety and funny, self pitying and self-important, and defiant in her small, strained act of love. Adrian Dunbar (currently starring in Line of Duty) joins the cast as her enigmatic husband.
Director: Max Stafford-Clark | Sound Designer: Dyfan Jones
Cast includes: Bríd Brennan, Killian Burke, Adrian Dunbar (from 18 May), Tara Flynn, Frank Laverty, Gary Lilburn (until 16 May), Ciaran McIntyre.
