Eh, Joe was Samuel Beckett's first piece written for television. Joe is clearly afraid of something unseen. He has gone through his routine, doing what he feels he needs to do to protect himself. He is sitting quietly thinking he is safe. But he is not... It is not a face he finds watching himself but a voice he hears, a woman’s voice. As the voice progresses we move closer and closer to Joe.
