Presented by students of Santa Monica College and Bath Spa University
Thursday 13th April at 2pm and 7.30pm
A project over two continents, the company comprises of Acting students from Santa Monica College USA, and Bath Spa University. This project is a unique event bringing together students from two groups of actors half a world apart.
The company perform a quartet of plays by Samuel Beckett, winner of the 1969 Nobel Prize for Literature and master of minimalist precision. His plays create a surreal world in which characters are propelled by undetermined forces and humanity is revealed in unexpected ways.
The Beckett plays included in this collaboration are:
Quad - in which characters are propelled by undetermined forces, and humanity is revealed in unexpected ways.
Come and Go - considered by many critics to be one of the most “perfect” plays written by the master of minimalistic precision.
What Where - his last play
Catastrophe - which arguably, holds the title of Beckett’s most optimistic work.
