In 1956 the BBC asked Samuel Beckett to create a radio play (drama), something he never did before. The radio play became “All that fall”, that was aired on the BBC radio for the first time in 1957, so exactly 60 years ago.Maddy Rooney, a seventy year old woman that exists of “twohundred pounds of unhealthy fat”, is on her way to the station of Boghill to visit her blind husband, as a surprise for his birthday. On her way to the station she meets some fellow villagers. The trip doesn’t go as planned….

For the exhibition 'Words are all we have' Nieuwe Vide asked a group of artists to respond to a radioplay called 'All that Fall' of Samuel Beckett.
