Fourth Love: Not I, Robot

Posted August 19th, 2010

Samuel Beckett was famously wary of adapting his plays from one medium to another. In response, YouTube users have unanimously said, “We don’t care!” This week we’re running YouTube’s finest interpretations and parodies of Beckett plays to get you in the mood for the 2010 Live Arts Festival production First Love by Samuel Beckett, performed by Conor Lovett.

Today’s installment: Beckett’s uncanny one-woman show Not I as performed by the “read aloud” feature on TextEdit.

First Love by Samuel Beckett runs for four performances September 3 through 5. Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia. Various times, $25-30. For tickets, click here.
