A bawdy and unpredictable tale charting the faltering journey of elderly Maddy Rooney as she ventures along a country road to surprise her blind husband at the train station for his birthday treat.
Along the way she is helped and hindered by a series of colourful characters; but when she is united with her husband, she is confronted with a strange and harrowing event that makes him seem a stranger.
Beckett's one-act radio play, first broadcast in 1957, has been adapted for live performance, with audiences being blindfolded as the cast move about them in the auditorium, their voices joined by a surround-sound design.
