HOW IT IS: PART ONE
A stage rendition of Beckett’s novel by Gare St Lazare
Gare St Lazare Ireland’s newest work receives its world premiere performance. The result of the three-year Artistic Residency here, this production has been made on and for the Everyman stage.
How It Is will be the company’s 11th Beckett prose work for the stage. Directed and co-designed by Judy Hegarty Lovett with a creative team of actor Conor Lovett, composer/sound designer Mel Mercier, actor Stephen Dillane, set and lighting designer Kris Stone and costume designer Joan Hickson.
Perhaps Beckett’s most complex and enigmatic work How It Is was Beckett’s last full-length novel.
