An Important Debut Novel

by MORA GREY

‘During the course of a final rehearsal of Samuel Beckett’s two most enigmatic plays, ‘Krapp’s Last Tape’ and ‘Not I’, Mora Grey burrows into the psyches of the production team and of the playwright himself as he watches, pontificates and finally demonstrates how one of his most famous characters should be played. Members of the the team reflect and, in one tragic case, lose themselves in the texts during this gripping, psychological account of the making of drama’

REVIEWS

 “great thought-provoking theatre which you feel will inform your next viewing of a Beckett play.”

Oxford Daily Info, Burton Taylor Studio 21st April 2015 

“What would he [Beckett] have made of all this? My view is he would have been gripped. He would have laughed too.”

London Theatre 1, Mill Studio, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Guildford, 9th October 2015
