He’s known for his no nonsense role as Superintendent Ted Hastings in Line of Duty, and now Irish actor Adrian Dunbar is bringing his talents to Liverpool.
The star who comes from County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland is also a writer and is well known for his stage roles.
But for Samuel Beckett: In Confinement he will be behind the scenes, directing several plays by the author for a festival in Liverpool.
It is the first time the event which will celebrate the works of Beckett, will be held in the city.
The star said he is excited to be bringing Beckett’s works to life here: “Beckett’s work finds us dealing with the fundamentals of human existence, what keeps us going when the world and our place in it feels absurd and empty.
“His work is of great comfort to those who have experienced the hardship and trials of life, affirming in us all as it does how precious and fleeting it may be.
“What we’re doing is bringing Beckett to Liverpool. We’re very excited about it and think it’s going to be of interest to a lot of people. “We chose Liverpool because the city has a big Irish community who we hope will want to come to see these plays.” (ITV)
