Arcturus Theater Company presents two more Samuel Beckett shorts together as an hour of evening entertainment

Play (1963) involves three lovers caught in a purgatorial love triangle. Rapid-fire, poetic verse conveys the characters’ frustration and desperation to be released from this eternal entrapment. We are proud to be collaborating with the esteemed international artist Rosemary Feit Covey who has provided awe-inspiring backdrops for this show. The actors are Greg Jones Ellis, Margeaux Martine, and Cristen Stephansky.

Play will be followed by a staged reading of the radio play, The Old Tune, Beckett’s 1960 interpretation of Robert Pinget’s play La Manivelle (The Crank). The readers are Kim Curtis and Phil Bufithis.

Technical direction by Jeff Maione, photos by T Rose, and direction by Ross Heath. Graphic design and promotion by Rosemary Feit Covey and T Rose.

A free preview will be presented at the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Harman Hall, 610 F St, NW, April 19 at 6 pm.

Four $15 performances will be at The Woman’s Club of Arlington, 700 S. Buchanan St., Arlington VA, April 23 to 26 at 8 pm.

Play is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
