Beckett in Foxrock has been running annually since 2016 from the writer’s home parish church of Tullow on the southside of Dublin. The highlight of each year’s celebrations is a performance by Mouth on Fire theatre company in the unique atmosphere of the church itself. In 2019, an unforgettable presentation of All That Fall led to the show being reprised at the request of the President of Ireland at the Presidential residence to mark the 50th anniversary of the award of the Nobel Prize for Literature to Beckett, and also the 30th anniversary of his death.

Marcus Lamb in The End

For Covid reasons, it was impossible to hold a 2021 performance in person. In its place, an outstanding film has been created of The End, performed by Marcus Lamb and directed by Cathal Quinn. In addition, it is accompanied by a short documentary titled The Beckett Country, shot in Dublin city and various locations dear to Beckett, scripted and presented by Feargal Whelan of the Trinity Centre for Beckett Studies.

The package of both films will be available for a mere 10 euro throughout the month of November following its launch on the evening of Tuesday 2nd.

Tickets and information available here.
