Krapp’s Last Tape

Samuel Beckett 

This event has passed.

A 69 year-old man listens to the voice of his 39 year-old self.

Looking back on his loves, failures and losses, Krapp rewinds through his life with humour and heartache.

The end result is simple yet beautiful ­– a classic Beckett play that’s both punchy and personal.

“What an imaginative response this evening was to the challenge of restarting the performing arts… a grippingly angry, burnt-out performance.”
★★★★ — The Times

“Niall Buggy is spellbinding as Krapp… he combines sealed-eyed reverie with scoffing self-contempt…”
★★★★ — The Telegraph
