BECKETT IN FOXROCK
Darkly funny but with brilliant humour, The End by Samuel Beckett, was performed in Tullow Church, Foxrock by well-known actor Marcus Lamb on Saturday 25th March. This was a special, limited capacity event in a unique location inextricably linked with one of Ireland’s greatest writers. The event was sold out on the night.
Beckett in Foxrock is the second annual event honouring the writer’s connection with the area.
Samuel Beckett, Nobel Laureate, was born and brought up in Foxrock and was a regular attender, along with his mother, at Tullow Church. A commemorative plaque was unveiled by Beckett’s niece in 2016.
Marcus Lamb, who played Des O’Malley in the TV mini series Charlie, Padraig Pearse in RTE’s Rebellion will shortly be seen in the film adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture. Marcus has toured with Druid in Australia, North America, Japan, Ireland and Europe and is an experienced Beckett actor.
Beckett in Foxrock 2017 – THE END is organised by Tullow Parish and Mouth on Fire Theatre Company in association with FACE (Foxrock Area Community and Enterprise) with the support of Dun Laoghaire County Council.
