The conception of theatre cruelness of Antonin Artaud meets in some contact points with the works of absurd drama. That goes also in a framework of the problems of language functions. However we discern here a different way in access to this problems. Jacques Derrida names the principles, by which Artuad wants to remove dominant position of word in theatre, he suggests the notion to substitute by sound. We can follow other access on the examples of Beckett's dramatic plays. Beckett opened the borders of language through his subvert from inside. Disconnecting of relationships on level syntagmatic and paradigmatic plain interferes a function of logic relation of language, his communication character then goes to the inaccessibility.
