ABSTRACT
Conor McPherson (1971) is considered to be one of the most innovative Irish playwrights, with an amazing gift for storytelling. However, he is a screen writer and film director as well. So far, he has written the script of I Went Down (1997), Saltwater (2001), The Actors (2003) and The Eclipse (2009); the last three he has also directed. McPherson was responsible for the adaptation of Samuel Beckett's Endgame for Channel Four's "Beckett on Film" series.      This article aims at showing how he transposes Beckett's stage directions of the play Endgame to the screen.
