Not Like Beckett

By Michael Watts

28 July 2006 – 20 August 2006 Beckett Theatre

Malthouse Theatre,

New Writing Theatre World Premiere

Get ready to meet the most famous comedian you have never heard of. Walter Walloon Beckett, all-singing, all-dancing humorist extraordinaire and the last of the famous Beckett clan. And he's a rabbit.

Trapped on a hillside in outback Australia, in fear of an unseen assassin's bullet, Walter reflects on his life and his one true love, Boo Boo the bilby.
