Originally produced in 2001
Summary: Breath was written in a response to Kenneth Tynan's request for a sketch to be included in Oh, Calcutta and was first produced in New York in 1969. This is the most compressed of Beckett's dramatic works, lasting less than a minute. On a set full of rubbish, a person cries out and breathes in again. Life is reduced to a brief interlude of dim light between two cries and two darkness's symbolizing birth and death
