Krapp's Last Tape
Saturday 14 December 2019
To close their highly successful and diverse 2019 season at the Old Fitz Theatre, Red Line Productions presents a Samuel Beckett classic, Krapp’s Last Tape. Internationally acclaimed director Gale Edwards directs the extraordinary Jonathan Biggins in Beckett’s glorious dance between performer and tape recorder.
It is Krapp’s 69th birthday, and he is preparing for his last annual recount of a life brimming with fading hopes and stark disappointments. An unflinching portrait of a man nearing the end, Beckett collides the tragic and the comic in a powerful exploration of time, fate, memory and the ones that got away.
The play is considered to be Beckett at his most autobiographical and draws heavily on biographical detail.
