Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects) plays Samuel Beckett with young Beckett played by Fionn O’Shea (Normal People) in a sweeping account of the life of this 20th Century icon.

Parisian bon vivant, World War II resistance fighter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright, philandering husband and recluse, Samuel Beckett lived a life of many parts.

In this first ever biopic about Samuel Beckett, Dance First pivots around the 1969 Nobel Prize ceremony when he was awarded the prize for Literature and explores his life through his mistakes and fraught relationships with James Joyce (Aidan Gillen), his wife Suzanne (Sandrine Bonnaire) and his lover Barbara Bray (Maxine Peake).

Directed by BAFTA and Academy Award winner James Marsh (The Theory of Everything) and written by BAFTA winner Neil Forsyth (Guilt).
