About this Event

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies and The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame's Keough School of Global Affairs, in association with Unreal Cities are pleased to present , 4 days of exploring Samuel Beckett’s wild fascination with communication and technology’s traversal of time and distance, across a programme of theatre, music, film, dance, photography, and discussion.

All That Fall

Performances last approx 75 minutes.

The sonic experiments, discoveries and evolutions of All That Fall (1956) led directly to the establishment of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Hungarian / British dramatist Martin Esslin commented that “Beckett and All That Fall thus directly contributed to one of the most important technical advances in the art of radio and the technique, and indeed technology, of radio in Britain.”

The 2022 Beckett: Confined performance of Geistertrio featured live extracts from Beethoven’s Ghost Trio (Op. 70) – with All That Fall’s inclusion of Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 (D.810) we hear the only other direction by the playwright for the use of a specific composition, framing director Adrian Dunbar’s re-imagining of a radio play whose dark-driven conclusion is hardly credible after the preceding slapstick and pantomime of the foley.

Director: Adrian Dunbar
Actors: Orla Charlton, Anna Nygh, Frank McCusker, Vincent Higgins, Stanley Townsend, Frankie McCafferty.
Sound Design: Simon Roth
Technical Director: Michael Cummins


is funded by The Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool, the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame's Keough School of Global Affairs and Culture Ireland, and with thanks to University of Liverpool Alumni and Friends fund for their generous support of the Beckett Student Ambassador Scheme at the festival.

We are grateful to acknowledge additional funding received from The TS Eliot Foundation.
