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. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, and is best known for his play Waiting for Godot which launched his career in theater. He then went on to write numerous successful full-length plays including Endgame in 1957, Krapp's Last Tape in 1958 and Happy Days in 1960, as well as several short, one-act plays. While his plays may not be for everyone, Beckett's works capture the pathos and ironies of modern life, yet still maintain his faith in man's capacity for compassion and survival no matter how absurd his environment may have become.
