Gare St Lazare, “Ireland’s most travelled theatre company,” is making its fifth visit to the Watergate Theatre with a unique performance of Samuel Beckett’s short story The End.
Taking place on March 13 at 8pm, it will be performed by Irish actor Conor Lovett, who is 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.”
Conor Lovett and director Judy Hegarty Lovett have built a reputation for their presentations of Beckett’s prose on stage and have toured across Ireland and to 65 cities around the world.
Tickets to their Watergate performance cost €14/€10 and are available from 056 7761674 and www.watergatetheatre.com.
