THIS SEASON: THE WORK OF BECKETT
In October we begin a new series, this Season focusing on the extensive works of Samuel Beckett.
We begin with Samuel Beckett’s FROM AN ABANDONED WORK published by Calder in his 1978 collection SIX RESIDUA, and continue 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
26th November: RETURNING to Godot
From a performance in East London to his Theatre in the Round production at the Cockpit Peter Marinker traces the evolution, over fifty years, of WAITING FOR GODOT in the mind and practice of an actor. The reading climaxes with a taste of the play itself in an edited one-man rendition of Act One of this timeless play.
