"Specially commissioned by the BBC as a radio play, All That Fall was first broadcast in 1957," press notes state. "Set in rural Ireland, the play follows Mrs. Rooney, struggling under her aged, rheumatic, large frame, on her way to meet her blind and ill-tempered husband off the train. Along the way, she encounters Christy with his dung cart, old Tyler on his bicycle, Mr. Slocum, a racecourse clerk, and Miss Fitt, a pious spinster. At once chilling and compassionate, intimate and expansive, All That Fall offers an inimitably idiosyncratic and at times hilarious perspective on loss, grief and old age."
The staging also features production design by Cherry Truluck, lighting design by Phil Hewitt and sound design by Paul Groothuis. The associate director is Anthony Biggs, and the production stage manager is Jess Johnson.
All That Fall is produced by Richard Darbourne Ltd. and Jermyn Street Theatre in association with Gene David Kirk.
