Stephen Rea stars in Beckett’s quietly distilled masterpiece, Krapp’s Last Tape. His 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.
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.
Landmark’s 20th anniversary production promises to be a major theatrical event.
Directed by Vicky Featherstone (artistic director of the Royal Court Theatre, London, for the past ten years), the design team includes Jamie Vartan (set); Katie Davenport (costume); and Paul Keogan (lighting).
