Heartbreaking and hilarious, The End is the story of a man expelled from the institution that has been caring for him, to fend for himself in the world. Leaving no detail of his existence unexamined, the protagonist endears himself to the audience as with dignity, humanity and humour, he faces his impending death.
Acclaimed interpreters of Samuel Beckett’s plays, novels and short stories, Conor Lovett performs and Judy Hegarty Lovett directs The End.
Hailed for their fresh and accessible interpretations, Conor Lovett and Judy Hegarty Lovett have collaborated on over 17 Beckett titles, touring to more than 22 countries with their precise and elegant work.
Gare St Lazare Players will also be performing Beckett's First Love as part of the 2011 Festival programme.
“Lovett turns out the lining of his every mental pocket to provide brilliantly entertaining reportage from the barest
edge of the human condition.”
- Irish Independent (UK)
“Lovett’s supremely funny performance is such a pleasing triumph”
- New York Times (USA)
