The Flowers Are Dead/All That Fall - RHINOFEST 2011
The Flowers Are Dead is a modern depression-era tragic comedy about two families connected only by the stealing of a bicycle.
All That Fall, written for the radio and rarely performed, continues Curious's ongoing investigations of Beckett's work. The work, performed by us last summer as part of Beau's Three Story Animal series, is Beckett at his most Irish, as Mrs. Rooney, a large woman with a lot to say, journeys through town to meet the train which is already late because of a mysterious death on the tracks, a train that carries her blind, wheezing, bitter accountant of a husband. Mrs. Rooney, Beckett's funniest woman character, flirts, argues, whines her way, with the help and hindrance of her neighbors.
