Two By Beckett Footfalls & Not I Opens 2019 Season For WingSpan Theatre Company


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 human condition.
