‘I honestly love this knotty Beckett shit. It’s dark as a bat’s eyeballs but it tells you the truth about what it means to be alive.’ Huffington Post

‘Visionary and magical’ The Telegraph

‘Caitlin McLeod’s production … plays intriguing games with reality’

‘Alison O’Donnell and Jack Tarlton perform excellently’  The Guardian

‘Crowe flirts with some immense questions’ A Younger Theatre

‘…the 70 minutes crack along, keeping you guessing from beginning to end and the play certainly leaves its mark.’ Female Arts

‘EV Crowe has won awards aplenty for her work and it’s easy to see why: her writing is intense, probing and almost perversely unknowable’ 

‘Beckett definitely haunts EV Crowe’s searching new play’

‘properly intriguing’ Time Out 


Brenda has made a decision. Robert is trying to stop her. An unusual break up is on the horizon. 

Broke and losing hope fast, this story is about Brenda and Robert. Brenda doesn’t think she’s a person. Robert thinks he knows what it will take to change her mind. He’s ready to try anything.

Made by two of our most exciting theatre makers, E V Crowe (Kin, Hero) and Caitlin McLeod (And I and Silence), BRENDA comes directly to The Yard from the celebrated HighTide Festival.

This brave new play will ask us what life could look like free from the everyday challenges of being a person. Brenda’s journey into the unknown is more familiar than we all think.

Suitable for ages 14+

Running time: 70 minutes without an interval.
