a queen of puddings music theatre production in association with canadian stage

This elegiac, provocative show juxtaposes shorter plays of Samuel Beckett with contemporary classical music from outstanding Irish composers inspired by Beckett’s appreciation for the absurd. This new production reunites renowned Canadian Beckett director Jennifer Tarver with Dáirine Ní Mheadhra and John Hess (music direction), and showcases a dynamic Canadian cast comprised of actors Laura Condlln, Michal Grzejszczak, Tom Rooney, and Sofia Tomic, who will share the stage with soprano Shannon Mercer and trumpet player Michael Fedyshyn. Queen of Puddings bring their signature contemporary twist to this invigorating evening of music, theatre, and Irish madness.

Act Without Words II, Come and Go, Play and Ohio Impromptu are presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Recording of this performance by any means is strictly prohibited.

about the author

Best know for Waiting for Godot and Endgame, Beckett is one of the world's foremost playwrights.  His writing was inspired by some of those characteristics most dear to the Irish: a huge appreciation of the ridiculous, great irreverence, deep melancholia and plain old craic.
