Eleutheria by Samuel Beckett, Michael Brodsky

By Samuel Beckett, Michael Brodsky

This is for individuals with greater than an ordinary curiosity in Beckett and the improvement of his paintings. I definitely don't imagine someone may suggest it for a primary (or moment, or 3rd) method of Beckett.

The play, a necessary addition to Beckett's physique of labor, could be of curiosity to an individual concerned about the author's artwork and with exploratory theater.
