Beckett's first play written specifically for television, Eh Joe explores how one man is forced to face up to his past and the lovers he has abused and driven to destruction. Tormented by inner demons, he is made to relive everything he has tried to forget.
In this acclaimed production from the Gate Theatre, as the disembodied voice speaks out, a camera projects the face of Joe (Michael Gambon) onto a large screen intensifying every flicker of fear, anger and shame. As the emotional tension heightens, we are all forced to admit that we can't escape our past.
'This must be the greatest half-hour in theatrical history... The great Gambon says nothing, and gives the performance of his life.' The Sunday Times
