This collection brings togehter five of Samuel Beckett's dramatic pieces, including a one-act stage play, two radio plays, and two mines. The stage play, Krapp's Last Tape, is a shattering drama that emerges through the monologue of a man who, on his 69th birthday, plays back the autobiographical tape he recorded on his thirty-ninth. The two radio plays were commissioned by the BBC: All That Fall plumbs the same pessimisstic depths as Waiting for Godot, andEmbers is a suspended drama of a man haunted by the sea, his dead father, & his wife. Finally, Act Without Words I speechlessly portrays the frustration of existence & Act Without Words II juxtaposes anti-repetitive motions of two men.
