A festival of Beckett’s prose on stage featuring theatre, music and visual art.  

May 17 – June 5 2016. 

First Love

by Samuel Beckett

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.  

Directed & Designed by Judy Hegarty Lovett

Performed by Conor Lovett

Lighting by Simon Bennison

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.

Tickets £27 & £22

Performances 7:30pm on Tuesday 18 May, Thursday 26 May, Thursday 2 June

Running Time: 80mins

You can also watch First Love in a double bill with The End.
