Not I, Footfalls and Rockaby are three short, later plays of Samuel Beckett, written years apart, but all at one time performed by the playwright’s. I chose these three plays by Samuel Beckett because they are sometimes collected together, or performed together, and with good reason. Theatre’s premiere productions of Samuel Beckett’s stage plays That Time and Footfalls shows us May, a middle-aged woman dressed in gray, pacing up.

Too many repetitive elements that you can find almost in all Beckett’s works: Everything goes to decay like lights and sounds.
Jun 21, Mike Jensen rated it it was amazing. A mother and a daughter and pacing. Brilliant Beckett that should not be overly analyzed here–partly because I don’t pretend to have mastered it.
This one act must wash over you like a wave, and then you see what it leaves behind.
Jun 08, Myrto rated it really liked it. Wow, one of his best plays. It’s only a few pages buuut its meanings footdalls so deep. Well, well, it’s interesting to see how noice the sound our feet produce when we walk becomes a medium of existing, becoett being. Also, I found magnificent how at the end of the play hope and the posibility to escape from destitution is expressed–simply–by “not being there”, by absence.
Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby review – a technical masterclass in Beckett
Dec 09, Kayley rated it liked it Shelves: A fairly short read that compliments Beckett’s absurdness. I believe Footfalls is a metaphor for the evolution of life and the importance of family and the memories that are soon to be forgotten.
