Screenwriter and theatre director George Tabori has died. He was 93. The Hungarian-born star passed away at his home in Berlin, Germany, on Monday (23Jul07) after suffering from a long illness. Tabori moved to London in 1935 when he was 21-years-old, and he soon began working for the BBC. After World War Two, he moved to the U.S., where he found work as a translator before becoming a screenwriter, working on movies like Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess in 1953 and The Young Lovers, for which he and his co-writer, Robin Estridge, were awarded a BAFTA for Best British Screenplay in 1955. Tabori was also highly respected as a theatre director, and his 1983 production of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot in Munich, Germany, is considered one of his biggest and best plays. At the time of his death, Tabori was hoping to direct a stage version of Shakespeare's King Lear. Referring to his final work, Charles Peymann, the director of the Berliner Ensemble theatre, says, "We are all terribly sad. It is as though King Lear has left the stage."
