About All That Fall

Out of Joint and the Happy Days Enniskillen International Beckett Festival present an extraordinarily atmospheric theatrical experience.

Samuel Beckett described his radio plays as “coming out of the dark”. Now, internationally acclaimed director Max Stafford-Clark is literally taking blindfolded audiences into darkness for a rare live production of Beckett’s first radio play. 

In 2015, All That Fall was chosen by Guardian's chief critic, Michael Billington, for his bookThe 101 Greatest Plays. It is a play about faltering journeys: an elderly woman’s slow walk to a country station to meet her husband on his birthday, and the people who help and hinder her; her blind husband’s train ride home – and the strange event that delays it, keeping them apart in more ways than one. 

Tony Award-winner Bríd Brennan will play the unforgettable Maddy Rooney – crotchety and funny, self pitying and self-important, and defiant in her small, strained act of love. Inspired by memories of Beckett’s native Foxrock, All That Fall is a playful, enjoyable and mysterious journey of words and sounds.
