Do not miss this special event as actor Barry McGovern, one of the world's leading interpreters of Samuel Beckett's works, is interviewed by U-M Professor Enoch Brater. McGovern will discuss his work with the Dublin's Gate Theatre and his new solo performance adaptation of Beckett's novel "Watt." Ireland's acclaimed Gate Theatre is largely considered the leading interpreter of the great Irish modernist writer, playwright, and humorist Samuel Beckett in the world.
This event is held in conjunction with University Musical Society's double-bill of two one-act Beckett plays (Endgame and Watt) performed by the Gate Theatre and featuring Barry McGovern at the Power Center Oct. 27 - 29.
Barry McGovern first appeared at the Gate Theatre as Lucky in Waiting for Godot in 1972. He has had a long association with the work of Samuel Beckett, has appeared in numerous productions of Beckett's work and is known as the greatest exponent of Beckett today.
