Winnie (Mary Ewald) and Willie (SeanJohn Walsh) are stuck in a rut. But even though it's the end of shopping as we know it, the couple remain up-beat and maintain a full routine of stimulating activity to get them through the day. New City founding Artistic Director John Kazanjian directs the production.
Actor Mary Ewald and director John Kazanjian's staging of Samuel Beckett's work began in 1979 with their award winning production of NOT I in the Direct Theater Festival on Theater Row, New York City. Ms. Ewald recently performed in Janice Findley's productions of ROCKABY, FOOTFALLS & EH JOE at New City and Mr. Kazanjian has previously staged KRAPPS LAST TAPE and ACT WITHOUT WORDS II.
