One-man show performed by celebrated Beckett interpreter Barry McGovern.
Based on Beckett’s trilogy of novels – Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable – this one-man show performed by celebrated Beckett interpreter Barry McGovern brings together three monologues that unify the central characters of each novel, revealing successively deepening layers of reflection and emotion. Firstly there is Molloy, who tells of how he came to occupy his mother’s room. Then there is Malone, alone and dying, telling himself stories as he awaits the inevitable. And finally the Unnamable, desperately seeking the right words that will permit him to utter his real self at last.
