BWW Review: BECKETT5 Shares the Playwright's Bleak Absurdist Style in Five Short PlaysBWW Review: BECKETT5 Shares the Playwright's Bleak Absurdist Style in Five Short Plays
by Shari Barrett - Jan 26, 2017

Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) is widely recognized as one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century.
