Eh Joe | Samuel Beckett (1965)
Klaus Herm : Joe, Billie Whitelaw : Voice.
« Voice should be whispered. A dead voice in his head. Minimum of colour. Attacking. Each sentence a knife going in, pause for withdrawal, then in again. » (Samuel Beckett à Alan Schneider, 7 avril 1966).
(Eyes open, resumption of intentness.)
Thought of everything? ... Forgotten nothing?... You're all right now, eh? ... No one can see you now … No one can get at you now ... Why don't you put out that light? ... There might be a louse watching you ... Why don't you go to bed? ... What's wrong with that bed, Joe? ... You changed it, didn't you? … Made no difference? ... Or is the heart already? ... Crumbles when you lie down in the dark ... Dry rotten at last ... Eh Joe?
