The Cultch and Blackbird Theatre bring you the first ever Canadian production of All That Fall by Irish writer Samuel Beckett. For 50 years no one has been allowed to stage this entertaining Irish play which touches on the harshness of life and the futility of religion. After a ban was lifted, audiences in New York and London were able to see this radio play produced on stage and now it’s finally come to Canada. The Globe & Mail has a nice run down about the history of how the show came to Canada. All That Fall is now on at The Cultch, 1895 Venables Street, until January 24th nightly at 8:00 pm with 2:00 pm matinees on January 4th, 11th and 18th. Tickets start at $19 and are available online at The Cultch.
