On opening night Emer Liston, the Chairperson of Writers in Prison Committee of Irish PEN (Poets, Essayists, Novelists) will talk briefly to commemorate Nov 15th - International Day of the Imprisoned Writer.
This is the first time Rough for Radio II has been staged in Ireland, perhaps in Europe. We are grateful to the Beckett Estate for permission to transpose this radio play.
This is also the first time the prose piece As the Story was told has been staged, and a rare chance to see Beckett’s last play What Where.
Mouth on Fire Theatre Company was set up in 2010 by Cathal Quinn & Melissa Nolan to perform the shorter plays of Irish playwright Samuel Beckett in conventional, unconventional and site-specific locations.
The core aims of Mouth On Fire are to bring Beckett to the general public and make his work accessible to those who may never have had a chance to experience it before.
We use his texts to bring awareness of the human condition, whilst doing so we aim to not only entertain, but also to highlight social issues. We are a theatre company with a social conscience and we will play anywhere and everywhere.
In the past year we have brought Beckett's work into homeless shelters, care homes, psychiatric hospitals and atmospheric theatres.
