beckett's muse

from 35.00

#art/#history: she & samuel beckett were thick as thieves. they met in 1963 & had an intense platonic relationship as poet & thespian soulmates until his death in 1989. together, they created theatrical napalm - billie lending her exceptional acting skills to beckett's plays. especially frantic was 'not i'. i will not describe it. superlatives cheapen her performance. you should seek it out for yourself & you'll see what i mean. warning: you'll come away smitten by coventry native & self-described 'working class girl-got-lucky', billie whitelaw (born #otd in 1932). will you recognise her if i say the phrase, 'damien's nanny off the omen'?
