A play without performers, BECKETT’S ROOM tells the story of the apartment in Paris where Samuel Beckett lived with his partner Suzanne during the second world war. A story of Art and Resistance, the audience listen through headphones and gaze upon a spectacle of absence - the absence of bodies on stage focuses us more intently on their stories, on the world changing around us, and changed by us.
The biography of a room, and an invitation to bear witness to a world as it disappears.
