Krapp's Last Tape
Time Out says
Jonathan Biggins takes on Samuel Beckett at the Old Fitz
Talk about leaving the best until last. The Old Fitz Theatre finishes the year on a high as director Gale Edwards and Wharf Revue star Jonathan Biggins take on Samuel Beckett’s one-man play for actor and tape recorder, Krapp’s Last Tape. Widely regarded as the most autobiographical of Beckett’s works, the 1957 one-act play focuses on the elderly Krapp who, on the eve of his 69th birthday, prepares to make his annual recording of his hopes and disappointments of the last 12 months, as he has done almost every year of his life. A moving and often grimly funny reflection on time and memory, it marks the Red Line debut for both Edwards and Biggins, as well as for veteran set designer Brian Thomson. Let’s hope it won’t be the last.
