Alone on his 69th birthday, a man prepares for his own "party" of sorts, surrounded by volume after volume of a life on tape. Before recording his annual account of another year gone by, Krapp carefully selects a vintage tape and drinks of his past. What he hears from his 39-year-old self may irrevocably change his future. In Krapp's Last Tape, Nobel Prize-winning playwright Samuel Beckett reminds us that while we may know more now than we did when we were younger, our past always has something to teach us. Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt's performance in this masterful solo-study has been heralded as "perfection" and "unmissable" (The Independent), bringing new depths to the bitterly nostalgic title character in this production from the Gate Theatre in Dublin.
