Year 11 theatre ensemble presents: Beckett’s Shorts

VLADIMIR Well? Shall we go?

ESTRAGON Yes, let’s go.

They do not move.

The Theatre of the Absurd was a movement of plays written by playwrights who were jaded by the physical and emotional destruction left behind by World War II, and whose writing was influenced by the existential philosophies of Kierkegård, Camus, and Sartre. Samuel Beckett was amongst these playwrights. The plays that he and others wrote during this movement aimed to highlight the futility of human action, and the inevitable truth that all choices and searches for purpose are ultimately inconsequential in the face of death…

How does that sound for a fun night?

Join us! As the Year 11 Theatre Ensemble take you on a strange and wonderful journey of verbal contradiction, bizarre characters, illogical plots, cyclical conversations, verbal contradiction. Wait, did I say that already?

Prepare yourselves at 7pm on Thursday 7th of September and Friday 8th of September for 9 performances of Beckett’s Shorts in the Level 2 Studio.

Tickets are complimentary however strictly limited.
