During October and November this year Matthew will be making use of the Centre’s archive on Samuel Beckett, together with its holdings on the English Stage Company (Royal Court). Matthew’s time in the archive will primarily be spent investigating the longstanding relationship Samuel Beckett had with this particular theatre.
