In Short

'Rockaby' is a 15 minutes one-woman play by Samuel Beckett. It was written in English in 1980, at the request of Daniel Labeille on behalf of Programs in the Arts, State University of New York, for a festival and symposium in commemoration of Beckett's 75th birthday. The play premiered on April 8, 1981 at the State University of New York at Buffalo, starring Billie Whitelaw, directed by Alan Schneider and produced by Daniel Labeille. A documentary film, Rockaby, by D. A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus records the rehearsal process and the first performance (this video).
