Gate/Beckett, comprised of three short one-man Beckett works, will play July 16-27, and feature Irish actor Barry McGovern alongside Fiennes and Neeson. The works, presented by the Gate Theater of Dublin, will run in repertory. A final marathon of all three will be presented July 27. Gate/Beckett includes:
Fiennes in Beckett's First Love, "the story of a man made homeless in the wake of his father's death who becomes reluctantly involved with a woman he meets on a park bench in this harsh glimpse of what love might have been," directed by Michael Colgan. Also as part of Gate/Beckett will be an afternoon of Beckett's poetry and prose on July 26. Fiennes, McGovern and Neeson are scheduled to read selections from Beckett's work at 2 PM in the Gerald W. Lynch Theater, where Gate/Beckett takes place.
