KRAPP'S LAST TAPE

by Samuel Beckett

directed by Gary Hopper

Spring 2021 (specific dates TBD)

On the occasion of his 69th birthday, Krapp enacts his annual ritual of listening to a tape that he recorded on a previous birthday (his 39th) as a prelude to recording an assessment of his present state of affairs.

Krapp's natal day celebration includes everything you expect from Theatre of the Absurd's master playwright -- poetry, heavy drinking, puns, bananas, and inexplicable beauty.

"I lay down across her with my face in her breasts and my hand on her. We lay there without moving. But under us all moved, and moved us, gently, up and down, and from side to side.


(Pause. Krapp's lips move. No sound.)

Past midnight. Never knew such silence. The earth might be uninhabited."
