Samuel Beckett's iconic 20th century masterpiece of modern isolation and illusion is presented by Intentional Theater using a text specially edited to reflect Beckett's own changes as limned in his production notebook.  This production promises to be a groundbreaking event.  Asta Hansen plays the trapped Winnie, up to her waist in a mound of earth.  She is joined by Dale Fuller as her husband Willie who resides, crawling and grunting behind the mound.  The characters, seemingly in separate worlds, are yet connected by shared history and love in this strange and wonderful play.
