"Writing plays is the way I connect with the world and follow ideas to their inevitable conclusion. Every play I write is a way to find out something about who or what I am and about the world I see around me—to find out if words can really ever 'get at what they are trying to say'."
Coming in October 2023:
Sam & Jim in Hell
Samuel Beckett & James Joyce discover the afterlife is not all it's cracked up to be in this world premiere of Jeanne Beckwith's comic drama. It's about Language, it’s about Legacy, …Oh hell, it's about Life! Beckett and Joyce commiserate, confide, cajole, criticize, and confound each other. They also trade wits with Colleen the Gatekeeper, Beckett's wife Suzanne, and Joyce's daughter Lucia.
Produced by Lost Nation Theater - located in downtown Montpelier, Vermont - the play will be directed by LNT's President & Founding Artistic Director, Kim Bent.
LNT has also produced the premieres of Jeanne's plays Love Letters Made Easy and last season’s Both Eyes Open: The Annie Oakley Story.
