Not I


Just seen a remarkable production of Beckett's Not I at the Royal Court with Lisa Dwan as Mouth, with Q&A afterwards. Audience member asks LD if its a problem that the mouth speaks of being 60 or 70 years old whereas she isn't and doesn't sound like an old woman. Lisa Dawn replies that it's not a problem, partly because she doesn't feel like a woman exactly, more 'like a creature', or (after prompting by James Knowlson) 'a machine'. Interesting answer I thought.
