“Sam & Jim in Hell” – A Reading of a New Play by Jeanne Beckwith
March 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pmFree
Lost Nation Theater celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with a reading of Jeanne Beckwith’s newest play “Sam & Jim in Hell.” The idea for “Sam & Jim in Hell” came as Beckwith saw the Samuel Beckett Bridge along the banks of the River Liffey in Dublin and she wondered what Beckett might think about a bridge named in his honor. Beckett – and his compatriot James Joyce – had both become Irish icons in spite of their feeling estranged from the Ireland of their time and Beckwith thought, “That must be hell for them!” At that moment, Beckwith started writing the play in her head. The play is about language, about genius, about memory, about friendship and broken relationships. Pre-registration is required here to get the link to the live reading. The reading will be followed by a short discussion session.
