Personal Quote:

Some people think of Beckett as a very negative writer. I think he's a positive writer. The last three words of [his novel] The Unnameable are: "I'll go on" - "You must go on; I can't go on; I'll go on." See more »


Leading figure in Irish theatre and a foremost lecturer and interpreter of the absurdist plays of Samuel Beckett. He has played the role of Vladimir in Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" more than any other living actor. See more »
