With this return to deep focus, the pan resolves into a cinematic reveal and cover: we catch a glimpse of the flowing water and a canal boat moving inexorably towards us “like fate itself ” (Abel 1984: 331), only to have that movement obscured by the arrivals.

Wilson could hardly have anticipated that an important strand within the theatre of the decade that followed would actively embrace the condition of absurdity both philosophically and formally; nor that, in this theatre, the spaces between verbal utterances would often be understood to communicate as powerfully as (often more powerfully than) the words themselves; still less that this sensibility would subsequently inform the performance of Shakespeare as well.
