Gare St Lazare Players
By Samuel Beckett
Performed by Conor Lovett
Directed by Judy Hegarty Lovett
Gare St Lazare Players, make their fifth visit to the Town Hall Theatre with a unique performance of Samuel Beckett’s short story The End performed by Conor Lovett, considered by many to be the definitive Beckett performer.
The End is a gritty account of the last days of an old man’s life as he struggles to live despite his willingness to die. Evicted from an institution of care he stoically fends for himself in a state somewhere between his dreams and reality. Beckett masterfully balances the tragedy with perfectly pitched comedy. Lovett and director Judy Hegarty Lovett have built a reputation for their arresting presentations of Beckett's prose on stage and have toured all over Ireland and to over 77 cities around the world.
As Lovett ages into his material his control is exquisite. Comedians would kill for such timing, where every nuance is in focus and every word a gem. Sunday Times.
