Beckett in Foxrock, an evening of drama, poetry and prose to recognise and honour Samuel Beckett, Nobel Laureate, Dubliner, and one of the world’s most influential writers, will be held on 5th March at 8pm in Tullow Church, Brighton Road, Carrickmines, Dublin 18. This will include some of his favourite music in the village where he was born, grew up and which influenced him so much.
This will be a unique, limited capacity event in a special location. Beckett’s mother was a faithful member of the church and the young Samuel regularly attended with her. These, and other local experiences, were ultimately woven into many of his later works. During the evening a plaque in Samuel Beckett’s honour will be unveiled in the church by members of the Beckett family.
Actors Geraldine Plunkett, Marcus Lamb, Jennifer Laverty, Melissa Nolan, Cathal Quinn and Colm O’Brien will perform theatrical extracts, poetry and prose produced by Mouth on Fire Theatre Company. Organist Rónán Murray and singer Donal Kenny will perform Schubert, while Dr Feargal Whelan (UCD) will connect Beckett’s work to the Foxrock/Carrickmines area.
A reception will follow the event in the adjoining hall and a photographic exhibition related to Beckett and Foxrock will be on view.
Limited capacity. Booking opens on Friday 29th January via link on www.tullowdublin.org Tickets €30 Restricted viewing seats €20
This event is organised by the Parish of Tullow and Mouth on Fire Theatre Company in association with FACE (Foxrock Area Community and Enterprise) and with support from Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
