How It Is (Part Two)
Gare St Lazare Ireland and The Coronet Theatre in association with The Everyman (Cork)
Directed and Designed by
Judy Hegarty Lovett
★★★★★ 'Gare St Lazare have certainly brought the wow factor to Beckett … (and) deserve to be congratulated, and cherished, for their uncompromising artistic vision.' - Irish Examiner
'A high recommendation – it’s a beautiful piece of work.' - Helen Meany (RTÉ Radio Ireland)
Director/designer Judy Hegarty Lovett with actors Stephen Dillane and Conor Lovett, and sound designer/composer Mel Mercier return to The Coronet Theatre joined by the Irish Gamelan Orchestra featuring soloists Nick Roth (saxophone) and Claudia Schwab (violin), with the UK premiere of the second instalment of Beckett’s tripartite novel, How It Is, following the success of Part One in 2018.
In a compelling innovation of form that pushes language to its limits, Beckett has created a work that is as evocative and emotionally charged as it is perplexing.
"The unparalleled Beckett champions" (New York Times) will once again reimagine the intimate auditorium of The Coronet Theatre in this new and ambitious in-the-round staging. How It Is (Part Two) is a unique standalone theatrical experience.
How It Is (Part Two) has recently been nominated for two The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards: Best Director for Judy Hegarty Lovett and Best Soundscape for Mel Mercier and The Irish Gamelan Orchestra. The awards ceremony will take place on 05 Apr in Dublin.
Gare St Lazare Ireland has an international reputation for excellence. For over 20 years, joint artistic directors Judy Hegarty Lovett and Conor Lovett have explored Samuel Beckett’s work, paying particular attention to works not written for the stage.Book tickets
