Famously reticent about explaining the meaning of his plays, Beckett found other ways to inspire actors, and was one of the most unusual and particular directors of his time. Stephen Rea, who himself worked with Beckett, takes a close-up look at the mind of the playwright.

Beckett's most celebrated interpreters, including Billie Whitelaw and Sir Peter Hall, share their memories of working with one of the greatest figures in 20th Century theatre.
