Description

This collection of Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett's dramatic pieces includes a short stage play, two radio plays, and two pantomimes. The stage play, Krapp's Last Tape, evolves a shattering drama out of a monologue of a man who, at age sixty-nine, plays back the autobiographical tape he recorded on his thirty-ninth birthday. The two radio plays were commissioned by the BBC; All That Fall plumbs the same pessimistic depths [as Waiting for Godot] in what seems a no less despairing search for human dignity (London Times), and Embers is equally unforgettable theater, born of the ramblings of an old man and his wife.show more
