Krapp’s Last Tape

written by Samuel Beckett
directed by Vicky Featherstone
starring Stephen Rea
Landmark Productions

Landmark’s 20th anniversary production stars Stephen Rea in Krapp’s Last Tape by Samuel Beckett. This promises to be a major theatrical event.

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

A man sits alone.  It is the evening of his 69th birthday. Every year, on his birthday, he records a new tape – a review of the year just gone.

But first, he listens back to a tape he recorded three decades before.  

Hard to believe I was ever that young whelp. 

A quietly distilled masterpiece, Krapp’s Last Tape is performed by Stephen Rea, whose long history with the work of Samuel Beckett includes working with Beckett himself when he played Clov in a production of Endgame at the Royal Court Theatre in London, at the age of 29.  

Directed by Vicky Featherstone, artistic director of the Royal Court for the past ten years, the design team includes Jamie Vartan (set); Katie Davenport (costume); and Paul Keogan (lighting).
