Directing Beckett presents essays and interviews with twenty-two prominent directors of Samuel Beckett's work -- including JoAnne Akalaitis, Edward Albee, Herbert Blau, Joseph Chaikin, and Casey Perloff -- many of whom worked closely with Beckett. Here they speak openly of their experiences of working with him, and comment on various productions that, in taking great liberties with his work, have raised fascinating legal and aesthetic questions. Also included is the previously unpublished text of a lecture by the late Alan Schneider and an interview with the late Roger Blin, the very first director of Beckett's work.
