The Beckett Project

Five Short Plays by Samuel Beckett

Directed by Phillip Zarrilli with Patricia Boyette

"like faintly recalled dream fragments, the images are subjective... spellbinding... presented with style and fire. They insinuate themselves into the viewer's mind and heart" ~ L.A. Times

 

Critically acclaimed in Los Angeles, the U.K., Ireland and Austria, The Beckett Project makes its Asian debut this August with performances of five plays by renowned Irish playwright Samuel Beckett.

Joining UK-based director/actor Phillip Zarrilli and award-winning American actress Patricia Boyette, the 3rd cohort of TTRP's graduating actor-students will take on the difficult task of performing this diverse set of late plays by Samuel Beckett.

The Beckett Project will showcase graduating actor-students in Play and Footfalls, Boyette in her award-winning performances of Rockaby and Not I, and Zarrillu in Act Without Words I.

These tightly orchestrated plays offer moments that are in turn haunting, evocative, and humorous. Given their precision, all offer a tremendous challenge for the actor.

Performed to mark the Beckett Centenary, The Beckett Project is a unique opportunity to experience the range and diversity of plays authored by the Nobel prize-winning Beckett in one evening -- another milestone for Singapore theatre.

Beckett's work has garnered much criticism and debate. Some have viewed him as a pessimist, while others think his work captures our common human condition. Come decide for yourself!
