Gare St Lazare will be presenting “How It Is” by Samuel Beckett at the Everyman from Jan 30 – Feb 3. It is one of his least known works.
Now Beckett isn’t for everyone and needs attention and study for it to grow on you. I loved waiting for Godot but beyond that, my familiarity with his works is pretty thin.
This was originally published as a novel (in French) in 1961. Gare St Lazare specialise in the works of Samuel Beckett and this production is a must-see for fans of his writings or those wishing to discover him. It is probably worth reading the book to understand what is going on before approaching this for the first time
