Meet Samuel Beckett with Richard Wilson (2015)

Richard Wilson, noted for theatrical productions of Waiting for Godot and Krapps’s Last Tapes, shares his love for a playwright recently described as ‘probably the most influential artistic figure of our time’ – Samuel Beckett.

How does this highly experimental, avant-garde playwright speak to us today? Richard Wilson travels to Enniskillen in Northern Ireland where his hero went to school, for the 2015 International Beckett Festival, and hears from fellow British stars of stage and screen Sir Ian McKellen, Juliet Stevenson and Australian actor Hugo Weaving, as well as acclaimed American director Robert Wilson. Lisa Dwan, who has made Beckett’s notoriously difficult play Not I her signature piece, celebrates the playwright’s love of the female voice.
