Theatre: Viewing life through prism of Beckett's vision

Both Sides by Jane Coyle The Old Courthouse, Market Square, Antrim Tonight, 7.30pm

By Grania McFadden

Two interlocking monologues, Me Here, Me and Before Before, are inspired by Samuel Beckett.

In the first, a young woman sits in a Paris cafe, watching the life of the street unfold. Everyday incidents seem unremarkable, until viewed through the prism of Beckett's vision, at which point troubling stories emerge.

In the second, a once-beautiful woman looks back ruefully on an eventful life and recalls a painful loss which still haunts her.
