Wednesday 21 March, 5.00pm – 7.00pm • MERL, London Road Campus, University of Reading
On Wednesday 21 March, the Beckett community at the University of Reading welcomes acclaimed actor Lisa Dwan to discuss the process of adapting Beckett’s prose for the theatre. In her 2016 performance of No’s Knife at London’s Old Vic theatre, Dwan confronted both the challenges and the possibilities of adapting Beckett’s prose for performance by a female actor in her staging of excerpts from Texts for Nothing. This discussion of Beckett and adaptation with Lisa Dwan will be followed by a Q&A session.
The Samuel Beckett Research Centre and the Beckett at Reading Postgraduate and Early Careers Group warmly invite you to join us for an enjoyable evening of conversations and a glass of wine.
