Summary "From the mid-1960s, Samuel Beckett himself directed all his major plays in Berlin, Paris or London. For most of these productions he meticulously prepared notebooks for his personal use."--BOOK JACKET. "The Theatrical Notebooks of Beckett that are reproduced in facsimile here offer a remarkable record of his own involvement with the staging of his texts. They present his solutions to practical problems of staging but also provide a unique insight into his way of envisaging his own plays."--BOOK JACKET. "With additional information taken from Beckett's own annotated and corrected copies, the editors of the Theatrical Notebooks have also been able to constitute a revised text for each of the major plays."--BOOK JACKET.
