About

IRELAND 100: Celebrating a Century of Irish Arts & Culture
Pan Pan Theatre
All That Fall
Written by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Gavin Quinn


All That Fall is a multi-layered composition of voices that can be experienced as a black comedy, a murder mystery, a cryptic literary riddle, or a quasi-musical score. Seated in rocking chairs, audiences are immersed into an atmospheric chamber of multiple speakers and ambient lights, experiencing Samuel Beckett's first radio play as he intended. Directed by Gavin Quinn, Pan Pan Theatre's production of All That Fall won the 2011 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Best Sound Design and Best Lighting Design as well as the Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh International Festival 2013.
 
Pan Pan was established by co-artistic directors Aedín Cosgrove and Gavin Quinn, and is committed to presenting their innovative and challenging performances nationally and internationally, touring with great acclaim in Ireland, UK, Europe, USA, Canada, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and China.

Recommended for age 16 and up.
