Thanks. We spent some time with Rosemary at the SB summer school. She was delightful. Also We know all the people in this Oxford program, they are from the summer school.

Very difficult to keep track of Beckett events most recent – https://www.jermynstreettheatre.co.uk/show/beckett-triple-bill/ – very small venue – Sold Out quickly by the looks of it. If Beckett is so popular why is the venue/acess so limited?
Is it possible the society could highlight upcoming Beckett related events like this?
Thanks Karen. You are correct that there are a particularly large number of Beckett performances and events being staged at present. We try to keep up with as many as possible as soon as we become aware of them but inevitably some don’t reach us in time. We maintain a facebook page and a twitter account, both of which draw attention to Beckett events, and tend to react more speedily than the website.
The Samuel Beckett Society
Apologies. That should have read Karin.
