Krapp's Last Tape

It is 69 year old Krapp’s birthday. He sits in his den for his yearly ritual of recording his reflections on a tape recorder. This one man show deals with growing old and the process of reflecting on those significant discussions that shape our lives.

Tom Owen, star of Last of the Summer Wine returns to the stage to take on the most challenging role of his theatrical career.

Krapp’s Last Tape is the most autobiographical of Samuel Beckett’s works. Written in 1958, eleven years before he won the Noble Prize of Literature, the play gives voice to the internal conversations we have with ourselves.  

“Notable performances of this masterpiece include the like of Harold Pinter, John Hurt and Michael Gambon. Tom Owen now stands by these global heavyweights in producing one of the most memorable performances of Beckett's misfortunately named fellow.”  EDINBURGHGUIDE.COM
