Krapp’s Last Tape

Date: 4 Nov 2019

Red Line Productions closes its 2019 season with a special event: Samuel Beckett’s classic Krapp’s Last Tape, directed by Gale Edwards and starring Jonathan Biggins in this 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.
