Saturday 24 March 2018, Tullow Church, Foxrock 8pm

First Love is possibly Samuel Beckett’s funniest short story. It tells the tale of a man who falls in love in peculiar circumstances – having been turned out of his own home. John Banville felt it is “the most nearly perfect short story ever written.”

First Love is performed by Marcus Lamb who recently played Bob Cratchit in the feature film The Man who Invented Christmas and Dr. James Oakley in RTÉ’s Fair City. Marcus also enthralled the audience with his performance in The End, last year’s Beckett in Foxrock production. The production is directed by Cathal Quinn.

Beckett in Foxrock 2018 – First Love is the third annual celebration of the Nobel Laureate’s close connection with Foxrock. Samuel Beckett was born and brought up in Brighton Road, just yards from Tullow Church which he attended in the company of his mother. The Foxrock area and many of its residents feature in much of his work.
