About this event
The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies and the University of Notre Dame in association with Unreal Cities is pleased to present Beckett: Confined, a three-day festival of Samuel Beckett’s plays, associated musical performances and lectures.
The festival's keynote by James Little introduced by Professor Frank Shovlin, and a roundtable discussion on “Samuel Beckett’s Politics of Confinement” with William Davies, Emilie Morin and Hannah Simpson.
Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) was one of the 20th century’s most celebrated playwrights and authors, winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. His works examine what it means to be human, in all its absurd, existentialist and sometimes bleak comedy.
