Perhaps the only thing in common between Samuel Beckett and savoury Japanese pancakes is their simplicity.
Abeno is one of Europe’s only specialist “Okonomi-yaki” (savoury Japanese pancakes) restaurants. And it was a delight to check it out. I had the prawn pancake, and hubs had the pork pancake. They were cooked before us by the proficient staff. They stayed hot on the stove plates and the flavours were savoury. Both were delicious, and light to have just before the heavy theatre….
“All That Fall” is a one-act radio play written by Samuel Beckett in 1956. We were given eye-masks to cover our eyes so we could experience the play as originally intended – through audio only. It has a simple plot but was rather too heavy for me. I couldn’t even take a nap with the eye-masks provided… Feel welcome to check out our (more insightful and extensive) other theatre reviews, for example of Art, No Man’s Land, The Libertine, or X.
