First Love

Directed by Judy Hegarty-Lovett
With Conor Lovett

The nameless protagonist of Samuel Beckett's novella First Love prefers to take his lunch in a graveyard, to breathe an air faintly scented with corpses, while imagining his own droll epitaph among the headstones.

"Lovett is both disarming and startling, carrying a singular, ironic achievement; the character may turn his back on the living, yet this performance brings rich new life to his words." The Irish Times
