'... this is a first-rate guide to the multiple ways this text has been made to work.' English Studies
'David Bradby's contribution to Cambridge University Press's fine series Plays In Production is a superb volume on Waiting for Godot ... a most welcome addition ... It is elegantly written, well presented, and immensely helpful through the wealth of information, insights, and analysis it presents in a very handy format.' Becket Circle Newsletter
'David Bradby provides the first comprehensive survey of the key production of Samuel Beckett's most renowned dramatic work and a refreshing assessment of the genesis of the play within its cultural contexts ... the book sits usefully on the shelf of anyone with an interest not only in Beckett's theatrical achievement, but in issues of play authorship and the interfaces between actors, directors, designers and a playscript or its author. The writing would attract and interest the general reader as well as the scholar, student, actor, director or designer and the work as a whole represents a useful sourcebook and a fascinating and readable account of the history of this most celebrated of plays.' Studies in Theatre and Performance
