Saturday Night, June 22! 8 p.m.
Choice Bits of Samuel Beckett

 

Special Saturday Night Theatre Event! “Bits of Beckett”

 beckett-littleGeorge Killingsworth and Hal Hughes perform short works and fragments from the work of Samuel Beckett…  perhaps we’ll get Rough for Theatre I, a bit of Endgame, a bit of Molloy… maybe Ohio Impromptu…  the boys have long experience voicing these and many other choice bits, so we’ll leave it up to them what they wish to deliver… our pleasure will be to attend to the words, the enigmas, & the rough & tumble of performance… perhaps an hour of your evening this balmy Saturday next, well spent in the company of three splendid chaps and their fertile imaginations…

Hal Hughes has bounced around the fringes of the Bay  Area arts world for decades, writing and playing music, acting, making and performing poems, and more, often in collaborations between art forms. As North Beach Beckett, he and George (with Jack Halton) performed Rough for Theatre I every Tuesday night for three months in Kerouac Alley (next to City Lights), and with a similar show to this, did a mini-tour of Northern California in 2010. Such things happen.

George Killingsworth has performed on Bay Area stages for the  past twenty years . . . small roles in bigger theaters . . . larger roles at smaller theaters.  Particularly proud to partner with Hal Hughes in these Beckett absurdities . . . having been privileged to act in playwright Hal’s The Fisherman’s Three Sons . . . a piece that’s long overdue for a  revival. [btw: ck out his film Fanny Annie Danny available on  Netflix and Amazon . . . viewing monitored by NSA/Booz  Allen]

. . . We can’t go on . . . We’ll go on!
