Act Without Words is a setting of the wordless play by Samuel Beckett, to be performed by a single clarinetist. The score is carefully synchronized to the action and staging of the play.

The clarinet can transition from silly to serious without even blinking, which Beckett does as well. The play has really black humor, so we’re going to laugh as this man is going through this horrible journey. I really loved the idea of solo clarinet for all of that.
