Fall 2019/WingSpan Theatre Company – TWO BY BECKETT
WINGSPAN THEATRE COMPANY in cooperation with The Bath House Cultural
Arts Centers celebrates our TWENTY SECOND SEASON! This Fall, WingSpan
Theatre Company will present TWO BY BECKETT – FOOTFALLS and NOT I -By
Samuel Beckett. The name Samuel Beckett transcends mere ideas or
theatrical schools; it stands for a cosmic and comic vision of pessimism
and passion, despair and destiny, wanting and waiting. Samuel Beckett’s
often bleak writings about alienation, death and language made him on of
the 20th Century’s most influential playwrights.
TWO BY BECKETT – FOOTFALLS and NOT I – By Samuel Beckett. These two
hauntingly beautiful and chilling One Acts investigate the “undiscovered
country” that Beckett and his characters yearn for. In FOOTFALLS – a
woman paces up and down a corridor outside her mother’s sickroom to the
metronome beat of her own pacing footsteps. The unseen mother,
describes the loneliness of her daughter’s life, and commiserates with
her daughter that there are more years to endure in her life. The
mother/daughter fusion is a compelling duet of how we must all “Go On.”
In NOT I, a disembodied female voice speaks of itself in third person,
recalling and releasing her vocal velocity in a tempest of whirling
language. These fragments of disjointed memory weave themselves in a
revealing mosaic of longings, doubt, and the frailties underlying the
