‘Company’ by Samuel Beckett, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Durham, 16 January – 20 January 2017

Hearing the Voice is delighted to announce that experiential audio performances of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Company’ will take place in the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Durham Cathedral from 16 to 20 January 2017.
Both moving and mysterious, Beckett’s Company is the story of a voice that comes ‘to one on his back in the dark’. This voice, which the protagonist can neither verify or name, ‘tells of a past’. In a performance of the text that is at the same time immersive and exploratory, the audience are invited to become the central character in this enigmatic story world.
