Actor Clara Simpson has over 20 years of experience interpreting Samuel Beckett in Ireland and France. With Pas Moi / Not I, she takes Beckett’s notorious monologue and performs it in both French and English back-to-back, reflecting Beckett’s bilingual journey as well as her own. The experience “provokes deep questions of the journeying from mother tongue to adopted tongue, and back again” (Feargal Whelan) and "offers an electric evening of theatre" (Stanley Gontarski).
