All That Fall- by Pan Pan
A life of unending misery in a world devoid of God, now that’s funny.
All That Fall is a multi-layered composition of voices that can be experienced as a black comedy, a murder mystery, a cryptic literary riddle, or a quasi-musical score, but that gains from being experienced in Pan Pan's uniquely atmospheric, theatrically tuned listening chamber.

'Gavin Quinn’s radical production goes further in honoring the spirit of Beckett’s wish, situating the play in the realm of pure imagination.' The New York Times
'The tension is perfectly judged - it is not enough to distract from the fine performances and Beckett’s bleakly funny text, but it is enough to justify the whole idea of listening to them inside a controlled and designed environment.' Fintan O’Toole, The Irish Times
'Pan Pan provide an experience that is genuinely different from anything you'll have encountered in the theatre before ... Under Gavin Quinn's direction, the company also provides an excellent performance of the play - perhaps even an exemplary one.' Irish Theatre Magazine
'Pan Pan’s production of Samuel Beckett's 1957 radio play, All That Fall, is a refreshingly disconcerting experience.' The Irish Independent
'Pan Pan under its director Gavin Quinn has given the play a masterly production ... Designer Aedin Cosgrove has provided a deeply unsettling ambience.' Emer O’Kelly, The Sunday Independent
