This performance interweaves the text and music of Samuel Beckett with original compositions by Paul Clark, drawn from and inspired by Beckett's works Watt, Malone Dies and The Unnamable.
Judy Hegarty Lovett has directed over 18 Beckett titles for Gare St Lazare Players Ireland and has now collaborated with composer Paul Clark to form this superlative ensemble. Singer Melanie Pappenheim, actor Conor Lovett, cellist Chris Allan, pianist John Paul Gandy and fiddle-player Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh combine to create a new vision and a refreshing approach to Beckett’s oeuvre. This is a rare opportunity to discover another facet of Beckett’s work with a truly virtuoso ensemble.
