{{#invoke:Italic title|main}} ... but the clouds ... is a television play by Samuel Beckett. Beckett wrote it between October–November 1976 “to replace a film of Play which the BBC had sent [him] for approval (and which he had rejected)”<ref>Ackerley, C. J. and Gontarski, S. E., (Eds.) The Faber Companion to Samuel Beckett, (London: Faber and Faber, 2006), p 77</ref> due to “the poor quality of the film”. Donald McWhinnie directed Billie Whitelaw and Ronald Pickup. It was first broadcast on 17 April 1977 as part of a programme of three Beckett plays entitled ‘Shades’ on BBC2. It was first published in Ends and Odds (Faber) 1977. An early title for the piece was Poetry only love.
