THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 On the occasion of his birthday Krapp reviews his life and listens to tape recordings he has made decades earlier, when he was young and in his prime. He listens to the promises he made and the fruition to which they came… As he listens to his past, to these days gone by, all categorised and coded by spool, he begins to face the realisation that he has wasted his life, a life that now approaches its end. Krapp’s realisation becomes increasingly poignant as he begins to record his last tape… Having played to critical acclaim in 2003 & 2006, award-winning actor Kenneth Alan Taylor brings Samuel Beckett’s classic monodrama to life once again. “This one man show is a triumph for Taylor, proving beyond doubt his power to hold an audience” The Stage on Krapp’s Last Tape in 2003 Directed by Matt Aston Designed by Mark Walters Lighting Design by James Farncombe Sound Design by Paul Stear
