A Mind-Bending Evening of Beckett explores the landscape of the human condition- a view of the world painted as only Mr. Beckett can.  In absurdist, minimal style he explores the frustrating trials and tribulations of Everyman stranded on a desert island in Act Without Words -- a mime, presented here with Bunraku style puppetry.  Breath, perhaps the world's shortest play, is a thought provoking statement on human life itself, followed by Play, a study in how our choices in life bind us together forever as we visit three people who are trapped and isolated, due to an unexceptional affair.   Bob Flanagan, who brought magic to the Irish Rep's production of The Emperor Jones with his spell-binding puppetry, guides these brief masterpieces into an evening of theater unlike any you have experienced.
