A life of unending misery in a world devoid of God, now that’s funny.

In All That Fall, Samuel Beckett’s first radio play, we encounter Maddy Rooney in her seventies – unsightly, ungainly and unwell – laboriously to-ing and fro-ing between her home and Boghill Station. This is a landscape whose details are drawn from the Foxrock and Leopardstown of Beckett’s youth, but which may now exist solely in Maddy’s mind.

All That Fall is a multi-layered composition of voices that can be experienced as a black comedy, a murder mystery, a cryptic literary riddle or a quasi-musical score, but gains from being experienced in Pan Pan’s uniquely atmospheric, theatrically tuned listening chamber, with the audience seated on specially-designed rocking chairs.
