'Beckett Shorts' presented by Theater Emory features three works by Samuel Beckett

February 25, 2020

ATLANTA – Theater Emory presents an evening of short pieces by Samuel Beckett: “Rockaby” featuring Brenda Bynum and “Krapp’s Last Tape” featuring Tim McDonough, both directed by Carolyn Cook. The third piece “All That Fall” features an all-student cast led by student director, Peter Buzzerio. Performances are March 25 – 29 in the Mary Gray Munroe Theater.

"Beckett Shorts" features three Beckett plays about the memory and pursuit of life, all of which use the nature of sound and language as a uniquely theatrical method of storytelling. Equal parts surreal and spellbinding, these shows feature some of the most talented professional and student actors with Emory ties. "We are thrilled to have professional actors and former Emory faculty Tim McDonough and Brenda Bynum returning to the stage in these amazing roles,” shares Brent Glenn, artistic director.

Performances of “Beckett Shorts” are March 25 - 28 at 7:30 p.m. and March 29 at 2 p.m. in the Mary Gray Munroe Theater of the Alumni Memorial University Center on the Emory University campus. Tickets for “Beckett Shorts” are on sale now through the Schwartz Center Box Office. Accommodation requests related to a disability should be made at least 24 hours in advance of the event to the box office at 404-727-5050 or by email at boxoffice@emory.edu.
