In Not I, a disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage, delivering a stream of consciousness monologue spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.

Footfalls features May, a woman wrapped in tattered clothing, pacing back and forth like a metronome, on a strip of bare landing outside her dying mother’s room.

In Rockaby, a woman dressed in an evening gown sits in a chair that seems to rock of its own accord. Recounting moments from her past, she slowly withdraws from the world. (
