Beckett or The Honour of God


Jean Anouilh

Published by Samuel French Ltd

5 Female

Never have Anouilh's characteristic intelligence and irony been employed with more telling effect than in this drama of the tragic relationship between the King Henry of England and the introspective intellectual who had been his dearest friend, but who became his implacable enemy when intrigue raised him to the hierarchy of the church

"Anouilh's finest play since Antigone.... Splendid" ~ Times , London

"Fine craftsmanship.... One of the finest feats of the kind" ~ Daily Telegraph
