Gare St. Lazare Ireland have performed at Vermont Coffee Company (VCC) Playhouse on four occasions since 2017. Joint artistic director Judy Hegarty Lovett directs Playhouse founder Deb Gwinn to bring the evocative and meditative late Beckett text Ill Seen Ill Said to the stage.
Having had 2 work-in-progress performances in the past 12 months the production will receive its premiere on September 27 & 28.
Developed in Middlebury in 2018 and in Mericourt, France in 2019, Ill Seen Ill Said is among the most beautiful and disquieting of Beckett’s prose works. It focuses on an old woman in a cabin ‘at the inexistent centre of a formless place’. She is part of of the objects, landscape, rhythms and movement of an incomprehensible universe.
