Walter Asmus – The Art of Beckett June 2015

Samuel Beckett called designer Jocelyn Herbert “my closest friend in England”, and they worked together many times.

The distinguished German director Walter Asmus reflects on his own working relationship with Beckett, which began in the Schiller Theatre in Berlin in 1974 and continued until 1989, the year of the playwright’s death.

The Jocelyn Herbert Archive is now housed at the National Theatre Archive and is open to all by appointment.  The catalogue of the Archive is available online here.
