The show is perfectly fine but it is directed towards those fascinated by the writing of the Irish writer Samuel Beckett, an academic pursuit that happens to also be entertaining. It certainly showcases Bill Irwin's talents as a well-trained actor!

A wonderful show for anyone who loves literate words and/or enjoys clowns! (Knowledge of, or experience with, Beckett is not required.) Bill Irwin is a one-of-a-kind, and very entertaining, genius! Don't miss this opportunity to see him live...continued

On Beckett was superb! I can’t believe that I am in my seventh decade and have never heard of or seen the work of Bill Irwin, a gifted, brilliant actor/performer.

Bill Irwin was brilliant, profound and funny. I learned a lot about Beckett and felt his work allowed me to experience Beckett in a new way. I loved the way Irwin used his body and his voice to give a full performance. Brilliant clowning!!

Irwin lightened up Beckett's writing with comedy in some scenes. His narration helped those who don't know Beckett's writing understand it better.
Because he is a comedian and a clown, the audience laughed at parts that weren't funny.

Beckett is not easy but worth it, especially when presented by the master Bill Irwin.

For anyone bewildered by the works of Samuel Beckett, or unmoved by his austerity, Bill Irwin provides a spell-binding introduction, unpretentious, charmingly personal, rich in rumination, illumination and anecdote, and performed with mastery....continued

Bill Irwin is one of the few people to truly earn the designation of "genius" and if anyone can explain the complexities of Samuel Beckett, he's the one to do it. The 90-minute solo performance (with a little help from a delightful little boy)...continued

Watching Bill Irwin perform and listening to his commentary was like having a master class about Samuel Beckett. This is a must see.

Bill Irwin is wonderful (my One and a half yr old granddaughter is a Mr Wiggles fan). His physical Comedy never fails to captivate. It was my first time at this theatre, I loved how the space enhanced the piece.
