The Encounter Company returns to the work of Symbolist playwright Samuel Beckett with its timely new production of ROCKABY


In an example of Beckett’s minimalistic prowess, featuring just one performer and a run time of just 15 minutes, ROCKABY remains a poignant exploration of the themes of agism, isolation, grief and class.

Orignally intended for a live audience in our home at the Abattoir Studio, Theatre Encounter’s ROCKABY has been reimagined as a dynamic film presentation directed by filmmaker Emil Agopian.
