Samuel Beckett’s towering novels Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable cycle between comic storytelling by a philosophical vagrant, an elderly man lost to memory and fantasy, and a paralyzed protagonist. In this evening-length theatrical rendition featuring excerpts from these novels, preeminent Beckett interpreters Conor Lovett and Judy Hegarty Lovett offer an embodiment of this existential trinity in a profound solo performance exploring the precision of language and Beckett’s remarkably uplifting worldview.
