Conor Lovett to Host Master Class at Rubicon Theatre Company, 7/24Rubicon Theatre Company is offering a special three-hour acting master class with guest instructor Conor Lovett of Gare St. Lazare Ireland on Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Students 20 or older may make a reservation by visiting or calling (805) 667-2900, ext. 234. Tuition is $50. Those who wish to audit may do so for $30. All participants should memorize a short contemporary monologue.

Lovett is an Irish actor with a distinctive reputation as a solo performer, ensemble player and sceen actor. His exploration of Beckett's prose and drama has earned him a reputation as one of the finest Beckett exponents of our time. With director Judy Hegarty-Lovett, Lovett is the co-artistic director of Gare St Lazare Players Ireland. He has performed eleven solo shows for the company and has played 18 Beckett roles in all. Other roles include The Man in Will Eno's Title and Deed, Ishmael in Moby Dick, David in Leaves by Lucy Caldwell, The Thief in The Good Thief by Conor McPherson, and The Old Man in his Coffin in The Bull by Michael Keegan Dolan. On screen, Lovett has appeared in "Father Ted," "Small Engine Repair," "Fallout," "L'Entente Cordiale," and "Intermission." Peter Brook invited Conor to work with him on the creation of his production Eleven and Twelve.

Lovett studied theatre with Jacques Lecoq in Paris and has performed on stage in over 80 cities in 25 countries worldwide. An experienced stage and screen actor, he has also worked with The Gate Theatre, Druid Theatre Company, Fabulous Beast and Corcadorca in Ireland in addition to the Signature Theatre Off-Broadway. He made his U.S. debut at Rubicon Theatre in Ventura with A Piece of the Monologue directed by Walter Asmus for Rubicon's BeckettFest. Other Rubicon credits include Samuel Beckett's Molloy, The Good Thief by Conor McPherson and his adaptation of Moby Dick with director Judy Hegarty-Lovett. Lovett will be appearing on the Rubicon stage again from July 23 through July 27 in Title and Deed.

A lyrical, haunting, funny celebration of life and language, Title and Deed stars Lovett as Man, a character who has just arrived and wants to describe his homeland, his journey and his encounters. This one-man play searches for the possibility of connection in a world where fewer and fewer people can claim to be 'from here' in our perennial search for home.

Online registration for the class is available through for Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 12pm to 3pm. Tuition is $50 for participants and $30 for those who wish to audit the class. For questions and additional information, contact Brian McDonald at 805.667.2912 ext. 234 or
