Beckett, Pinter and some guy whose name begins with M

There are some cool sounding readings at the Gate Theatre this weekend in Dublin. I love the Gate. They make an event out of everything.

Saturday at 4pm
Sunday at 6pm


€10 admission/ €5 Students

Central to the season will be a series of weekend readings which will feature excerpts from other works by the three playwrights. By presenting their writings side by side, these readings will highlight the symmetry and the relationship between the work while also exploring the playwrights' use of language.

Readings will be by the BPM Company and special guests.

SATURDAY 9 OCTOBER at 4pm
A focus on the work of Beckett, Pinter, Mamet, featuring extracts from plays, prose and essays. (oh so it's Mamet...)

With
Andrea Corr
Charles Dance
Barry McGovern
Owen Roe
Andrew Whipp

SUNDAY 10 OCTOBER at 6pm
PINTER DAY
To celebrate what would have been the playwright's 80th birthday, this session of readings will feature extracts from the prose, poetry and plays of Harold PINTER.
With
David Bradley
Ingrid Craigie
Charles Dance
Nick Dunning
Nigel Harman

Fab list of readers there.
