Description The ‘fragments’ are four rarely-performed plays and a poem by Samuel Beckett – Rough for Theatre I, Rockaby, Act Without Words II, Neither and Come and Go – directed by revered theatrical producer and director Peter Brook. The monologues, duos and trios reflect themes Beckett raises in his best-known plays – the search for truth, the futility of human existence, the opposition of hope and despair.
