The Gate Theatre has announced its Autumn/Winter season and it will include the staging of a World Premiere which involves no actors.
Beckett’s Room tells the story of an apartment in Paris where Samuel Beckett lived with his partner Suzanne during the second world war.
The play is conducted through audio headphones with not an actor to be seen on stage. The Gate has a traditional audience, reared on classic Beckett, Tennessee Williams and Oscar Wilde.
They took to the immersive Gatsby in 2018 and will be challenged to test their assumptions again over ten performances from September 10th.
This will be followed by FaultLine, a look back on events from 1982 which saw 1.500 people in Ireland investigated as ‘gay’ to use the vernacular of the time, and in many cases exposed involuntarily to family, friends and employers.
An untold story that deserves to be heard by generations that have lived and loved in more tolerant times.
The Beacon is a new play by Nancy Harris which will be directed by Garry Hynes as a Druid and Gate Theatre co-production.
The season will also include another World Premiere in the shape of Colm Toibín’s Pale Sister.
Ticket prices for every performance in the season will start at a very accessible €15.
