Beckett & Cops Curtail Fringe Intentions???

By • West End
Some of the Fringe’s other myriad shows have faced legal problems of their own. In Good Godley, performer Janey Goodley, who married into a family of Glaswegian gangsters, boasts about a crime she committed without punishment. A policeman who saw the show warned Goodley that she could still be arrested, having publicly admitted her guilt. And the show Act Without Words, which attempted to blend elements of Samuel Beckett’s Act Without Words I with dialogue from his Act Without Words II, has been forced into a total revision after legal threats from the Beckett estate, which unstintingly enforces the late playwright’s wish that his plays should be performed exactly as they were written.
