with Bill Irwin
A.C.T.’s Strand Theater
“Extraordinary . . . contagious! On Beckett finds Bill Irwin completely ‘on.’”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Genius . . . a masterclass in Beckett.”
Bay Area News Group
“On Beckett is theater for theater nerds."
“Exceeds brilliant, surpasses intense, and outclasses funny!”
After a sold-out engagement last year, Tony Award-winner and master clown Bill Irwin returns to The Strand in a limited engagement, performing passages from Samuel Beckett’s plays, prose, and poetry—with the occasional soft-shoe rhythm—as well as reflections on Beckett’s writing after 50 years of performing the great playwright’s work.
Runtime: 90 minutes, with no intermission.
On Beckett will take place at A.C.T.'s Strand Theater at 1127 Market Street, San Francisco.
