Elena Dotsenko (Urals State Pedagogical Univeristy-Ekaterinburg, Russia)
Postmodernism in British drama could hardly be doubted as Tom Stoppard belongs to this theatre. The establishing of postmodernist technique in British drama may be considered since Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, and from this very point it has been connected with Beckett’s theatre innovations. Not only Waiting for Godot influenced Stoppard’s play, but the dramatic version of postmodernism depends on Beckett’s theatricality. If performance is paradigmatic for postmodern culture, it was Beckett who forced theatre to concentrate on performance.
