In this memoir, I recall my discussions with Samuel Beckett in preparation for the “Beckett Festival of Radio Plays” in the late eighties and ranging from there to other topical matters.

“From one world to another”

Beckett’s Radio Plays

in Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui




From West Berlin Germany 6 July 1985. Unspoken but understood of course was that the most useful concept and clear objective of such productions now at this point in time late in his life would be to give him an opportunity for any rethinking revising updating that he might want to make. It seemed a matter of prudence decency and common sense. It was and is not intended as an ideological position and says little about what I might do in subsequent productions should I make them or about what other imaginations might choose to do when producing these plays and does not predict what I might make of what they choose to do.
