SAVE THE DATE! IRISH DAY AT THE THEATER – “On Beckett” at A.C.T. Geary Theatre • October 23

In this intimate 90-minute show, Bill Irwin will explore a performer’s relationship to Beckett, mining the physical and verbal skills acquired in his years as a master clown and Tony Award–winning actor. Irwin’s approach to the comic, the tragic, to every side of Beckett’s work — including Waiting for Godot, Texts for Nothing, and more—will allow audiences to experience the language in compelling new ways. Whether you’re encountering the Nobel Prize winner’s writing for the first time, or building on a body of Beckett knowledge, this dynamic showcase is not to be missed. SPECIAL “IRISH DAY AT THE THEATRE” EVENT, OCTOBER 23, WITH PRE-SHOW RECEPTION & POST-SHOW DISCUSSION WITH BILL IRWIN AND UC BERKELEY BECKETT SCHOLAR, PROF. JOSHUA GANG. DISCOUNTED TICKETS – 15% OFF!
