It is on at the Young Vic from 27 Aug to 13 Sept 2008.  Three actors- Kathryn Hunter Marcello Magni and Khalifa Natour.

Details are here www.youngvic.org

Well worth seeing.  The Beckett influence on the title of one of Brook's books, The Empty Space, also becomes evident.

Peter Brook's highly recommended Fragments returns to the Young Vic in London in August and September 2008.  Fragments is made up of Rockaby, Rough for Theatre I,
Act Without Words II, Come and Go and Neither.

Act Without Words II is very much a reinvention of the original play, and Neither is text Beckett wrote for a short opera.

I saw Fragments when it was in London a few months ago and I highly recommend it.

More detailssoon.
