Readings - The Work Of Samuel Beckett

A Cockpit Production


Peter Marinker and friends present incisive, subversive writing from every era.

Readings and discussion of the most disruptive, from the most informed, for the most discerning. Work from Beckett to Homer and back again - a word to the wise.

Listen to plays,  poetry,  prose, and letters. Followed by an open discussion, in the comfortable Cockpit bar or upstairs in Studio 1.

With Peter Marinker – Director, Bookshop Theatre


Sundays - 7:30pm


In October we began a new season focusing on the extensive works of Samuel Beckett.

We began with Samuel Beckett’s FROM AN ABANDONED WORK published by Calder in his 1978 collection SIX RESIDUA, and are continuing through the year looking at both little and well known work with plays, poetry, letters and rough work for radio.

“Although the readings from Dante, Shakespeare and Kafka among others were wonderful evenings, it’s great to be back with Sam.” - Peter Marinker
