About this show

Krapp, 39 is a voyeuristic prefiguring of Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape, and a deeply personal window on one man's last moment of youth. Reeling on his 39th birthday, an actor's obsessive identification with Beckett's famous character compels him to examine his own quixotic life and failures. His hilarious and heart breaking self-scrutiny plays out through intimate audio tapes, archival video, raw journal entries, haunted letters, racy confessions, and recorded conversations with the living and the lost. The show is written and performed by Michael Laurence, and directed by George Demas. All 39-year-olds are invited to attend Krapp, 39 FREE OF CHARGE (I.D. required at Box Office.)
