Subject: April 1938 Old Vic CORIOLANUS starring Olivier?
I received the following question from a visitor to my website, but had
no help to give on the subject:
"To Whom It May Concern:
"I am a U.S. scholar who is working on a second book on Samuel Beckett,
and I have gotten interested in CORIOLANUS, which I believe he may have
seen. Is there a video available of the CORIOLANUS from the Old Vic,
staged in April 1938 and starring Laurence Olivier? Any help you can
give me will be appreciated and noted in my book when it is published; I
have gotten interested in Beckett and the war, and the timing of this
production makes it relevant to the war, which seems to me to have had
its influence on Beckett, who was writing in 1940-44.
