A play for broadcasting by SAMUEL BECKETT with Mary O'Farrell and J. G. Devlin
On the face of it, a simple if unexpected affair; an anecdote set in a rural community in Ireland. In fact, a careful synthesis of speech, sound, and silence; a story of the inadequacy of life and death, breathing an atmosphere of vitality and ruin, farce and suffocation.
