Where would I go, if I could go, who would I be, if I could be, what would I say, if I had a voice, who says this, saying it’s me?’
The world premiere of No’s Knife sees Samuel Beckett, a titan of theatrical writing, exploring the powerful resilience to stay alive. Hard on the heels of a sold-out international tour of the Beckett Trilogy, Lisa Dwan presents a fresh and penetrating interpretation of this monologue. Recognised as modern theatre’s foremost adaptor of Beckett’s work, Lisa brings her unexpected and compelling voice to these hitherto unperformed writings.
Lisa Dwan has worked extensively in theatre, film and television both internationally and in her native Ireland. Film credits include; Oliver Twist and John Boorman’s Tailor of Panama and Bhopal – A Prayer for Rain due for release this year. In 2012, she adapted, produced and performed the critically acclaimed one woman play Beside the Sea at the South Bank Centre and on tour and starred in Goran Bregović’s new music drama, Margot, Diary Of An Unhappy Queen at the Barbican. She also performed in Ramin Gray’s production of Illusions by Ivan Viripaev at the Bush Theatre.
