The drama is based on a turning point in the life of the young
writer, Samuel Beckett. Set on the exotic rocky coast of Ireland in the
1930's, Beckett must choose between leaving his country for
psychotherapy or abandoning his talent. While facing the sea, he carries
on imaginary confrontations with his father, mother, sister and lovers
as only Beckett can. A tour de force characterization for a stellar
actor, the play exposes the contentious mind of the emerging world
famous playwright. Empty space setting of Greystones Bay provides
opportunities for sound and visuals.
Beckett at Greystones Bay
was a finalist in the Pen and Brush, NYC, International Competition,
winner of a Tyrone Guthrie Irish fellowship, and heralded on tour by the
Hudson Opera House.
