The 2 PM performance on July 26 features the talents of Julianne Moore, Barry McGovern and Liam Neeson; July 27 will boast Ralph Fiennes, Neeson, McGovern and Cynthia Nixon. The afternoons will be held in John Jay College's Gerald W. Lynch Theater. "The actors," according to press notes, "will read from a selection of extracts from Beckett's novels and poetry, as well as his shorter prose and dramatic works."
Tickets, priced at $20 and $40, may be purchased by calling (212) 721-6500 or by visiting LincolnCenter.org. The Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College is located at Tenth Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets.

The plays comprise Eh Joe (with Neeson), which was penned for television in 1965; I'll Go On (with McGovern), adapted from the 1950s novels "Molloy, Malone Dies" and "The Unnamable"; and First Love (with Fiennes), based on a 1965 novella.
