All That Fall
  • West End

Take an extraordinary journey in the dark.

Samuel Beckett described his radio plays as "coming out of the dark". Now, internationally acclaimed director Max Stafford-Clark takes blindfolded audiences literally into darkness, for a rare live production of Beckett's first radio play, featuring a 360 sound design.

A funny, chilling and touching journey of words and sounds, this production comes to the West End following sell-out performances at Wilton's Music Hall and Bristol Old Vic.

All That Fall is one of Beckett's most naturalistic plays, inspired by boyhood memories of his native Foxrock in Ireland. It is a play about faltering journeys: an old woman sets out to greet her husband at the station on his birthday, only for events to take a deeply unsettling turn&

Tony Award-winner Brd Brennan plays the unforgettable Maddy Rooney - crotchety and funny, self pitying and self-important, and defiant in her small, strained act of love. Adrian Dunbar joins the cast as her enigmatic husband.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
