Just very quickly. We went to the New Theatre in Temple Bar this evening to watch the final performance of Beckett's Outbursts, presented by The Godot Company, presently on tour from London. There is so much to say but that will have to wait for another day. Samuel Beckett's humour, follies, obsessions and oddities were splendidly captured by publisher John Calder, tv actor Michael Howarth and Oengus MacNamara in a glorious comic vein, which resulted in a piece of fine acting that kept the audience in stitches for an hour and a quarter straight. There was no interval. Narrations involved selected episodes from some of the late Nobel Prize winner's finest works, The Unnamable, Watt, Mercier and Camier, Molloy and Worstward Ho. The touring company's next destination is Belfast. I was as Des observed, "totally enraptured and loving it."
