This essential book collects all of Beckett's short dramatic works, including Krapp's Last Tape, Play, Film, and all of his radio plays. Though all his short works are indeed included in this single volume, in order to make reviewing easier we have split Beckett's smaller dramatic pieces into two categories, "Short Plays for the Stage," and "Plays for Various Media."
