Checkoff In The Sun
Victoria is terminally ill. She arranges for a villa in the southwest and has her closest friends and family join her for what is assumed to be a final meeting among them. Two generations attend. It is a farewell but none can figure out how to say farewell. Each comes with a personal history, each with a personal need to assert what she or he meant to Victoria, the part played in Victoria’s life, and expectations for what Victoria should feel about them. Least of all can they figure out what she might want of them or how to handle the impending death.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/seattle-beckett-festival

Only 3 days left! We’ve raised $5225 of our $20,000 goal!

Seattle is on the verge of world domination. Following the exciting and surprising Seahawks Super Bowl victory, Macklemore dominating the Grammys, and impressive social policy measures it’s time to ask what can we do as a community to continue this great surge of city pride, community and collaboration. In this spirit, a group of almost 20 theatre companies has joined forces to produce an unprecedented festival. Featuring productions from the largest of companies in town to the smallest, and the words of the most important playwright of the 20th century, we came up with a celebration of Samuel Beckett spanning August through November.

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 we all love is a rare opportunity. Beckett gets it…he gets what it is like to be human and struggle through the human condition, and say it to and for the common man. He unites us all in our common angst of what it is like to be human and survive as a human in human society.

We will feature not only the plays (such as Waiting for Godot, Endgame, Krapps Last Tape, Act Without Words parts I & II, etc), but also readings of his poetry and prose, screenings of his films, master classes on Beckett, pop-up performance events, presentations of the radio plays, and much, much more.

Seattle Beckett Festival is a sponsored program of TPS.

The Collaborators on this project include:

Seattle Shakespeare Company (Waiting for Godot)

West of Lenin (Rockaby, Act Without Words, La Dernière Bande [Krapp's Last Tape performed in French])

Sound Theatre Company

ACT Theatre (hosting Seattle Shakespeare Company, UMO Ensemble, Endangered Species Project)

Northwest Film Forum (Films of Beckett)

UMO Ensemble

Arts on the Waterfront

Book-It Theatre

New Century Theatre Company

Theatre Influence

Seattle University

Cornish College

Endangered Species Project

Sandbox Radio (All That Fall, Words and Music)

Eclectic Theater (Play)

Ghost Light Theatricals (Endgame)

Azeotrope

ReAct

… and more!

What We Need & What You Get

Due to the unparalleled nature of this collaboration, we as a collective of theatre companies are seeking a sum of $20,000 to fund this festival. This money will be used to build the infrastructure around the festival, as we are aiming for a collective presentation of the works, yet within the normal season structure of the companies involved. This includes:

Campagin through local magazines, newspapers, radio and television.
Creation and upkeep of website.
Creation and distribution of maps and punch cards for repeat visitors
Possible inclusion of some exciting guests.
Generation of awareness of the festival through collateral.
In return, you, the audience member, will be able to see many different takes on the work of perhaps the only playwright that can bring together as diverse a selection of companies as are listed above.

Samuel Beckett Bio and notable works

Samuel Barclay Beckett (13 April 1906 – 22 December 1989) was an Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet, who l wrote in both English and French. His work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on hman nature, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humor.

He is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century and is considered one of the last modernists (though sometimes he is considered one of the first postmodernists.) He is one of the key writers involved with the Theatre of the Absurd.

Beckett was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature :for his writing, which – in new forms for the novel and drama – in the destitution of modern man acquires it’s elevation.”

Waiting for Godot (1954)
Act Without Words I (1957)
Act Without Words II (1957)
Endgame (1957)
Krapps Last Tape (1958)
Happy Days (1961)
Play (1963)
Rockaby (1981)
*Please note that all awards will be presented to you either at the location of the performance you choose to see, or at a centralized location.

This is a sponsored program of Theatre Puget Sound. Any charge associated with this campaign on your credit card will reflect this.

“The only sin is the sin of being born”

Seattle, WA — In the spirit of community, a group of almost 20 theatre companies have joined forces to produce an unprecedented festival. 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 Samuel Beckett beginning in August through November.

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 a rare opportunity, and one that Seattle is primed and ready to engage in.

WHAT: Seattle Shakespeare Company and Theatre Puget Sound, in conjunction with various other arts organizations (listed below), bring present a city-wide Seattle Beckett Festival. Featuring not only the 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.

WHO: 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 Shakespeare Company, Seattle University, Sound Theatre, TPS, Theatre on the Waterfront, UMO Ensemble, & West of Lenin.

WHERE: Various venues around Seattle

WHEN: August-November 2014

WHY: This community event will bring together Seattle theatre companies, both large and small, to produce and perform a wide range of Samuel Beckett’s work in various venues around Seattle this fall. 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.

HOW THE PUBLIC CAN GET INVOLVED NOW: A donation campaign to fund the festival is running on Indiegogo, now throughApril 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 visithttp://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/.
