Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby Irish actress Lisa Dwan performs these three Samuel Beckett monologues, directed by Walter Asmus, a close friend and collaborator of the playwright. Not I, performed as a speaking mouth spotlit in the blackness, transfers from the Royal Court to the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room. For this special event, actress Billie Whitelaw, who performed the original under Beckett's coaching, has tutored Dwan herself and the stream-of-consciousness piece is spoken at the speed of thought, as per Beckett's instruction. In Footfalls, a woman paces back and forth, metronome-like, outside her dying mother's room and in Rockaby, a prematurely-old woman rocks back and forth in a rocking chair, a piece that explores issues of loneliness. The pieces will tour UK theatres and festivals throughout 2014.
