Description

Enjoy a self-guided, audio tour which leads through Belfast’s vibrant university quarter, immersing the listener in the enigmatic imagination of the great Irish writer Samuel Beckett.

The atmospheric recorded commentary has been adapted from ‘Me Here Me’, the first of two interlocking dramatic monologues which comprise the play ‘Both Sides’ by Belfast writer Jane Coyle.  The original is set in a Paris café and is spoken by a mysterious, young woman.  Through her eyes, we view the busy life of the street outside and the colourful gallery of passers-by.

This adaptation is by the writer; the narrator is the actress who played the young woman in the play.

  • Writer: Jane Coyle
  • Director: Rhiann Jeffrey
  • Narrator: Hannah Coyle

The tour lasts approx. 45 minutes and begins at The Pantry Café, Crescent Arts Centre, 2-4 University Road, Belfast.

Please Note:

  • You are required to download the commentary onto a smart phone and to listen through your own earphones.  No equipment will be provided.
  • You can take control of the commentary, walking at your own pace, pausing for refreshments, to take photographs or to pursue an interesting diversion along the route.
  • You can also download/print a numbered map (listing specific Beckett references), together with the commentary script, with street directions.
  • Tickets are open-ended so you can enjoy the tour at any time.
  • Social distancing is at customer’s discretion.
  • Covid precautions inside the Crescent Arts Centre and No Alibis Bookstore will follow the regulations of the venue.
