The FIFTH Annual Samuel Beckett Festival, Beginning Nov. 21

Samuel Becket Film FestivalThe Annual Samuel Beckett Festival in Las Vegas, NV is a celebration of Samuel Beckett, his life, his work, and the work inspired by the absurd theater movement he pushed into the mainstream. If you are into dark, comedic works of moving art then you have found your new home! Dozens of performances, plays, and presentations from theater companies throughout Las Vegas and across the country will be presented from November 21st – December 15th, 2007. You aren’t likely to see anything like this anywhere else and it’s right in your back yard! This year’s festivities are rounded out by an opening night reception, various after-hour parties and more absurd art than you can shake a stick at (in case you are into shaking sticks).

If you haven’t seen any of these thrill seeking groups before, we urge you to leave your cubicle, couch, or armchair now and proceed quickly to your nearest ticket outlet. We implore you to buy your tickets now, not for any particular financial gain, but rather our belief that these shows are the most important and entertaining performances you will see….ever. If there is a show that you find difficult to view due to graphic language, violence, or abstract notions of time and space, we suggest that you see these performances over and over again to acclimate your notions of reality to those of the authors involved.

For your convenience, tickets are available online at and by telephone at 702.736.4313.

New Hearings Regarding Yucca Mountain:

On Monday, December 3, 2007, the Department of Energy (DOE) will hold a public hearing about the proposed nuclear waste site at Yucca Mountain at Cashman Center, 850 Las Vegas Blvd from 4:00pm to 7:00pm.  We Nevadans will have the chance to tell the DOE once again that we do not want this toxic, deadly substance transported across our state and buried a mere 90 miles from Las Vegas.  Your input is critical in this process and I would urge you to make your voice heard at this important hearing.  If you cannot attend the public hearing you can submit your comments in writing by January 10, 2008, to:
EIS Office, U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management
1551 Hillshire Drive
Las Vegas, NV 89134
