In one of Beckett’s most powerful narratives, Company, a body lies in the dark, listening to voices. Is the listener lying between life and death? Between sleeping and waking? Are the voices memories? Delusions? Dreams?

In this mind-opening production, you are that listener lying in the dark.

With eyes closed, lie comfortably on your back and drift into another place. Past, present, and future spiral together in Beckett’s haunting novella, adapted for a listening audience by Lane Savadove and EgoPo, the Philadelphia-based company who brought us Brenna Geffers’ The Hairy Ape in 2016.

Savadove’s staging of Company has been a singular theatrical experience of the work of the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett (best known for Waiting for Godot) for over two decades. Beckett concluded his novel, The Unnamable, with the words “I can’t go on. I’ll go on.” The motto might sum up all the plays of this season.

Live violin music adds to the soundscape of a story that is not so much told as lived together. Leave your expectations at the door and enter a space where only you and the play exist.
