All That Fall

Samuel Beckett's radio play, originally commissioned in 1957. Ostensibly an anecdote set in a rural community in IRELAND, the play is a careful synthesis of speech, sound and silence, constructed with Beckett's unique blend of desperate humour and despairing tragedy. With Anna Manahan (Mrs Rooney), Pat Laffan (Christy), David Kelly (Mr Tyler), John Kavanagh (Mr Slocum), Michael Devaney (Tommy), James Ellis (Mr Barrell), Jean Ann Crowley (Miss Fitt), Sharon Hogan (Female voice/Dolly), Niall Toibin (Mr Rooney), Dan Colley (Jerry). Directed by Bill Bryden.
