About

Arcturus Theater Company presents two more Samuel Beckett shorts together as an hour of evening entertainment.

Play (1963) involves three lovers caught in a purgatorial love triangle.
Rapid-fire, poetic verse conveys the characters’ frustration and desperation to be released from this eternal entrapment. We are proud to be collaborating with the esteemed international artist Rosemary Feit Covey who has provided awe-inspiring backdrops for this show.

Play will be followed by a staged reading of the radio play, The Old Tune, Beckett’s 1960 interpretation of Robert Pinget's play La Manivelle (The Crank).

Play is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Explanation of the 0 Project Starting in 2007 as a forum for the voiceless and an artistic catalyst at large social justice venues, the 0 Project has expanded. It is flexible art, freely loaned, continuing on a vital and varied trajectory, open to many interpretations and uses. Collaborations have included, the "Abductor" a large scale installation at Burning Man, Street Life Circus, Tomb Memorial a rock group from the Netherlands and many more. The 0 Project has its own music, clothing and projections. First exhibited as a building wrap 15ft. by 300ft. at Arlington Art Center in Arlington Virginia, it has wrapped buildings in Reno Nevada and Toronto Canada.The 0 Project is excited to be currently collaborating with Arcturus Theater Company.
