Staging Beckett Book Launch

Book Launch

Master’s Lodgings – Canal House
28 November 2013 15:00 – 16:00


A Dream and its Legacies


You are invited to a launch event for a book which tells the history of the plans to build what was to be the Samuel Beckett Theatre in St Peter’s College, Oxford around forty years ago.

A Dream and its Legacies: The Samuel Beckett Theatre Project, Oxford c.1967-76, by Dr David Tucker, describes the direct involvement of Beckett, artists such as Francis Bacon and Henry Moore, architects Norman Foster and Richard Buckminster Fuller, as well as a range of British playwrights, actors and directors. The book presents a previously untold part of Beckett’s life story which reveals much about the collaborative friendships of the time, as well as Beckett’s thinking about certain of his texts.

The launch will take place in the Master’s Lodgings – Canal House in Bulwark’s Lane

Thursday 28 November at 3pm to 4pm

Please RSVP by 22 November
