Beckett performed in Italy

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno


In the fifties and early sixties, the Italian state theatres favoured realistic production and politically committed plays over the experimental theatre of the absurd. BecKett, therefore, was first staged by avant-garde theatres for whom his experimental and anti-naturalistic plays where a constant point of reference. This essay analyses some significant productions of Beckett's plays in Italy in both the state and experimental sectors, with particular emphasis on Happy Days, and suggests future directions for the staging of Beckett in Italy.
