The Old Vic hosts a world-first staging of Samuel Beckett’s No’s Knife, a hitherto unperformed monologue lent a refreshingly sharp interpretation by Lisa Dwan.

Exploring the powerful resilience necessary for humans to survive, No’s Knife is finally performed by Dwan, modern theatre’s foremost adaptor of Beckett’s work.

A lone figure – a voice in the dark – searches for who it is, and why it speaks. Through piercing insight, rage, wit and humour, this is an extraordinary exploration of the heart of Beckett, delving into his contemporary relevance to gender, identity and the human condition.

Following her sell-out international tour of the Beckett Trilogy, Dwan’s presentation of the legendary writer’s undiscovered work features her uniquely subversive and captivating voice, infusing these qualities with the sheer magnificence of the subject prose.
