I'll Go On
Following the smash successes of Waiting for Godot at the Taper and Krapp’s Last Tape at the Douglas last season, a new set of oddly charming and brilliantly compelling Beckett characters arrive in Los Angeles.
Barry McGovern, Ireland's greatest interpreter of Samuel Beckett (last seen as Godot’s Vladimir), returns to the opus he helped develop for the stage 25 years ago and has performed over 200 times all over the world.
I’ll Go On extracts indelible characters from the Beckett trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable: hailed by The Times Literary Supplement as “one of the most remarkable, most original, and most haunting prose works of the century.”
With these marvelously surly characters, the mordant observations on life from a Nobel Prize celebrated author and the remarkable Barry McGovern center stage as the catalyst, I’ll Go On is sure to be another must-see, sold-out Beckett theatrical event.
“You must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.”
