WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Krapp's Last Tape - On his 69th birthday, Krapp consumes bananas, listens to "the stupid bastard I took myself for thirty years ago," and reflects on happiness, a woman, and writing. Steven Barkhimer, one of Boston's finest and most versatile actors, performs this comic-sad monologue for one actor and a tape recorder.

The Archives - To accompany Beckett's one-act play, FPTC engaged in a nation-wide search for a new woman-centered play as a counterpoint--happily finding the appropriate piece locally. In The Archives, by Skylar Fox explores an encounter with Krapp's tapes many years later. Fox, artistic director of the Boston-based Circuit Theatre Company, has crafted a play about human memory, digital memory, memorable regrets, and how we try to fit pieces of our hearts into things that will live after we die.
