Samuel Beckett's Ladies Night

Samuel Beckett's Ladies Night

Presented by Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company (MU) at Rec Room HTX

Directed by Greg Dean, Jennifer Decker and Jeff Miller, the evening features a series of avant garde shorts by world renowned playwright, Samuel Beckett: NOT I, ROCKABY, COME AND GO, and FOOTFALLS.  These weird and wonderful moments are rarely seen on stage as a series, but a recent production in Hell’s Kitchen earned the praise, “Hauntingly beautiful… these plays are must-see gems” from Theatre Mania, and should not be missed by anyone who is a fan of Beckett or of avant garde theatre. Each of these four plays explores the human condition through the voices of women frozen in a moment of their lives.

The New York Times described the shorts best by stating, “each Beckett short is a mordant miniature of a woman’s life, mostly unlived. All of the pieces restrict a woman in some way, reducing her to a gabbling mouth or a pair of creeping feet or a body entombed in a rocking chair.”

The co-directed show, featuring Carolyn Johnson, Jenna Morris, Whitney Zangarine, Sally Burtenshaw, Arianna Bermudez, Callina Anderson and Katherine Rinaldi runs about 1 hour, and tickets will be ‘pay as you can’, as is true with all of our full productions.
