HOW IT IS: PART TWO
A stage rendition of Beckett’s novel by Gare St Lazare
Following the success of How It Is (Part 1), developed over 3 years as Artists in Residence at The Everyman, Cork’s own Beckett specialists return with Part 2 of this towering novel.
A site-specific work featuring actors Conor Lovett and Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones), How It Is (Part 2) will be performed alongside The Irish Gamelan Orchestra with guest-tenor Mark Padmore and an original composition by Mel Mercier.
How It Is charts a journey undertaken by turns alone and accompanied, where time and space are fragmented and juxtaposed. GSL illuminate Beckett’s writing offering a new perspective on both Beckett and the exquisite auditorium of The Everyman.
