Theatre of the Absurd
Our school have started putting on lectures for Sixth Form students. Mine was on the Theatre of the Absurd with a focus on Beckett and Pinter. I only have half an hour so the Pinter part is a bit light. I have included my lecture notes so you can see my train of thought. But I intended students to read the Waiting for Godot extract out. Last year in the AQA A2 paper, Pinter was used so it is relevant.
