Seen previously on the streets of Dublin and Tokyo, this double bill of plays about the destitute will now unfold in the Barbican’s unique outdoor environment. 

Rough for Theatre I: Two vagrants, one blind, the other wheelchair bound, are locked in an uneasy encounter. For a brief moment, there is talk of joining up but hope slips away with a single gesture. 

Act Without Words II: Goaded into action by an unseen force, A and B emerge in turn from sleeping bags to begin contrasting routines. Although they never meet, they are somehow connected. 

With one drama wordless, these companion pieces draw context from each city in which they are performed while respecting Beckett’s characters and texts.

This is a promenade performance which takes place outside.
