You're unlikely to find a more salty or succinct embodiment of Beckett's fathomless sense of humor than this 75-minute production

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Why See All That Fall?

Following its acclaimed, sell-out run in London's West End, you don't want to miss your chance to watch two stage legends perform Samuel Beckett's extraordinary radio play All That Fall. Due to restrictions set by the Beckett estate, the show is presented in the form of a live radio play, with the actors holding scripts and using minimal props.

Originally broadcast on the BBC in 1957, All That Fall is Beckett's deeply personal, scorchingly funny and grippingly dramatic tale of one woman's comic and moving journey to meet her husband at the train station.

Eileen Atkins and Michael Gambon, two of Britain's finest living actors, star in this highly praised staging, directed by Trevor Nunn, in an exclusive, limited run of just 39 performances.
