“They give us Beckett distilled. And in the hands of Brook…the sharp observation of human conduct is lovingly delivered.” —The Financial Times
C.I.C.T./Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, Paris
By Samuel Beckett
Directed by Peter Brook
Co-directed by Marie-Hélène Estienne
Revered director Peter Brook, returning to the Kennedy Center for the first time since 1973, brings together five short works by playwright Samuel Beckett for his theater collection, Fragments. Brook’s pared-down style is the perfect complement to Beckett’s lean examinations of the absurdity of life. The works, Rough for Theatre I, Rockaby, Act Without Words II, Neither, and Come and Go, combine “cruelty, laughter, and unexpected tenderness” (The Daily Telegraph).
