Scope and Contents

Daniel Lindlley writes in his essay, "The Unnamable Samuel Beckett," that Beckett wrote his play "Breath" in 1970 as a contribution to Kenneth Tynan's show "Oh! Calcutta." It consisted of a few lighting effects, cries, and the sound of breathing. The Sackner Archive holds a hand-knit sweater by Astrid Furnival that depicts the full text of this play. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
