first love

One of Samuel Beckett's early novellas, First Love contains much of his distinctive black humour and a plot that is regarded as a masterpiece of Beckettian perversity.

A young man, expelled from the family home, takes refuge on a bench by a canal. There he meets a woman who takes him home, with comically disastrous consequences. 

Gare St. Lazare Players have toured internationally with their critically acclaimed presentations of Beckett's prose works. Conor Lovett's exceptional performance animates the bone-dry humour of a character besieged with a clutter of emotions.

“One could hardly come up with a better human instrument to intone Samuel Beckett’s blasphemous comic prose than Conor Lovett.” Los Angeles Times

We Feel...
Gare St. Lazare Players' precise and elegant work has made Beckett accessible to a whole new audience and earned the company an enviable reputation around the world.
