On 23 February 2018, Gare St Lazare Ireland and Le Centre Culturel Irlandais will host a symposium on Samuel Beckett’s 1961 novel Comment C’est/How It Is.

How It Is is currently being developed for a staging by Gare St Lazare Ireland in 3 parts and over several years and the symposium draws attention to this much neglected novel.

The Symposium will feature a number of international Beckett scholars and artists including Daniela Caselli, Peter O’Neill, Jean Michel Rabaté, Judy Hegarty Lovett, Anna McMullan, Dunlaith Bird, Dan Gunn, Mel Mercier and Pim Verhulst and the event will conclude with a reading from How It Is by actor Conor Lovett.

The event is free but booking is advised.  For more information , please visit centreculturelirlandais.com.

Supported by Culture Ireland and La Fondation Irlandaise.

Irish Cultural Center (Le Centre Culturel Irlandais), 5 rue des Irlandais, 75005 PARIS, France.
