Seattle Beckett Festival slated for August-November

'The only sin is the sin of being born' - Samuel Beckett



SEATTLE, WA - In the spirit of community, a group of almost 20 theatre companies have joined forces to produce an unprecedented festival this fall. Featuring productions from the largest of companies in town to the smallest, and the words of the most important playwright of the 20th century, Seattle will celebrate the life and work of Samuel Beckett. Beckett was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature, and this is a fantastic opportunity not only to promote and celebrate this extraordinary author and human being, but also to bring together the incredible local organizations that make-up Seattle's vibrant theatrical landscape.

Seattle Shakespeare Company and Theatre Puget Sound, in conjunction with ACT Theatre, ArtsWest Theatre, Azeotrope, Book-It Repertory Theatre, Cornish College of the Arts, Eclectic Theater, Endangered Species Project, Ghost Light Theatricals, New Century Theatre, Northwest Film Forum, Operating Theatre, ReAct Theatre, Sandbox Radio, Seattle University, Sound Theatre, Theatre on the Waterfront, UMO Ensemble, & West of Lenin are proud to present the city-wide Seattle Beckett Festival from August through November.

The festival will feature not only Beckett's plays (such as Waiting for Godot, Endgame, Krapp's Last Tape, Act Without Words Parts I & II, etc.), but also readings of Beckett's poetry and prose, screenings of his films, master classes on Beckett, pop-up performance events, presentations of the radio plays, and more. The opportunity for a community that's already pretty tight knit to come together on a city wide scale and have a conversation about a single writer is rare, and one that Seattle is primed and ready to engage in.

HOW THE PUBLIC CAN GET INVOLVED NOW: A donation campaign to fund the festival is running on Indiegogo, now through April 13th - not so coincidentally, Samuel Beckett's birthday. The funding received from this campaign will go directly towards operating, promoting, and marketing costs to honor this remarkable man, and ensure this unique collaboration of Seattle's arts organizations can realize the maximum potential of what is sure to be a magical festival! Patrons can visit http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/seattle-beckett-festival for details on how to support the festival. Information on the organizations and productions involved, audition notices, and more will be available shortly at http://www.seattlebeckettfest.org/.
