Blessed Unrest - An Evening of Samuel Beckett
A unique evening of rarely produced short plays by Samuel Beckett, one of the world's most important and profound playwrights.  These performances are dedicated to the memory of the late Joe Chaikin, who was an inspiration, mentor, and teacher to the creators and performers of this production.

Play, completed in 1964, presents the memories and struggles of two woman and one man who find themselves up to their necks in urns and compelled to speak by a mysterious light that rapidly flits from one to another.  It is a savage and disturbing farce that is one of Beckett's most entertaining plays.

Rockaby, one of his boldest experiments in theatrical form, explores the mind of a woman appraising her lonely, desperate life in a lyrical, heartbreaking monologue.  Written in 1980, it is one of Beckett's most moving and beautiful plays.

That Time, his hypnotic, exquisite 1975 play reveals the thoughts of an isolated man looking back over his life.  Through his trademark spare poetic language, Beckett movingly reflects on themes of love, loneliness and memory.  

As with many of Beckett's later plays, these three short dramas are bold ventures toward the boundaries of theater, brilliantly fusing form and content.
