Gare St Lazare Ireland recently showcased their production of First Love by Samuel Beckett at the Arcola Theatre, adapted from Beckett’s early novella. The piece was directed by Judy Hegarty Lovett and performed by Conor Lovett.
The piece was apparently written intended to be read, and this rings true during the performance, which is compelling and engrossing. I read First Love recently but found it hard going, yet Lovett’s dynamic delivery brought the work to life. A must-see for any Beckett fans.
