The Abbey Theatre: No's Knife
10th June-17th June
An Abbey Theatre and Old Vic Co-Production, No’s Knife is a selection of Samuel Beckett’s Texts for Nothing Conceived and performed by Lisa Dwan
Following its world premiere at The Old Vic in London, the astonishing No’s Knife opens for a limited run only.
‘Where would I go, if I could go, who would I be, if I could be, what would I say, if I had a voice, who says this, saying it’s me?’
A lone figure. A voice searching in the dark for who it is and why it speaks. Lisa Dwan offers a searing personal and political vision of Beckett’s most original work: Texts for Nothing.
Filled with piercing insight, rage, wit and humour, No’s Knife is an extraordinary journey into the heart of Beckett, unlocking his contemporary relevance to gender, identity and the human condition. It is an invitation to look at ourselves, and to ask who, or whom, am I?
