A strong streak of Beckett humour is present in the conversational exchanges in these 3 short plays that look at human destiny in terms of poignancy, compassion and inevitability.

1) Rough for Theatre 2 (30 mins): Two observers who may or may not be officials discuss a man contemplating suicide.

2) That Time (30 mins): An Irish labourer after years in Britain looks back on his earlier life and his disappointing career, before he dies.

3) Rockaby (30 mins): An old woman, sick of life, rocks herself into the next life.
