WATT Samuel Beckett Texts selected from the novel and performed by Barry McGovern. McGovern performed the resulting one man play with exquisite timing taking us  back to a time when things like a railway ticket could be bought for a handful of pennies.

He didn’t have any other actors to help realise the physical comedy of two elderly lovers sitting first her on his knee, then him on hers, but he had the audience entranced by it nonetheless. Beckett’s language, so carefully crafted, is well served by the intimate surroundings of the Royal Lyceum Theatre.
