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.

“An absolutely riveting experience.”
– Irish Times
“One could hardly come up with a better human instrument to intone the sonorous waves of Samuel Beckett’s blasphemous comic prose than Conor Lovett.”
– Los Angeles Times
“The greatest Beckett interpreter alive today.”
– Australian Arts Hub on Conor Lovett
