BECKETT IN LONDON
A festival of Beckett’s prose on stage featuring theatre, music and visual art.
Following their hugely successful run of Title and Deed by Will Eno at the Print Room last year, Gare St Lazare Ireland return with a festival of their acclaimed Beckett productions.
First Love is a short story from the same period as The End. A man recounts an episode early in his adulthood where, having been expelled from the family home, he meets a young woman on a bench. In order to rid himself of his infatuation with her he moves in with her. This is a perfect blend of Beckettian perversity and an inspired twist on the love story.
“Lovett’s supreme funny performance is such a pleasing triumph because the gallows humour emerges so organically.”- New York Times.
