Here are two photos from the November 3 performance of “Burroughs: The Tangier Letters” at the Espace Beckett. Performers Anne-James Chaton and Carolyn McDaniel gave readings in French and English of correspondence between William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. The letters ranged from ribald to hallucinogenic, mundane to shocking, and both performers movingly conveyed the wry genius of one of the 20th century’s most complex and controversial authors.
