“A virtuoso performance… a striking visual success Los Angeles Times on Cold Dream Colour

Return to Absence inhabits the rich and peculiar realm of Samuel Beckett’s trilogy of novels Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable. This new work embodies the resonant images, wrought emotions and bleak humour characteristic of Beckett’s world, brilliantly portraying the human condition often at the end of its tether.

We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
