Unsightly, ungainly and unwell, Maddy Rooney trudges laboriously from her home to Boghill Station, conversing with a richly conjured cast of characters along the way. She’s meeting her blind husband Dan off the train, but there’s been a delay. 

Sit back and listen to an intricate composition of voices. Weaving words and sounds to musical effect, recorded text comes out of the dark to reveal a bleakly comic account of one couple’s unending misery. 

Seated in rocking chairs, audiences are immersed into an atmospheric chamber of multiple speakers and ambient lights, experiencing Samuel Beckett’s first radio play as he intended.

“Allows us to savour Beckett’s uncanny mix of words, silence and orchestrated sound... A remarkable aural tapestry. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
