Krapp's Last Tape: Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012

Edinburgh Fringe · 3 - 26 August 2012
Tom Owen as Krapp in Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape
Tom Owen, star of Last Of The Summer Wine, returns to his theatrical roots in this powerful one-man play by Samuel Beckett.

The play tells the story of Krapp, a would-be writer, who each year since the age of 24 has recorded his impressions of the previous year on his birthday. Krapp’s Last Tape joins Krapp on his 69th birthday, as he listens to a tape recorded 30 years earlier.

Considered one of Beckett’s major theatrical achievements, the sonorous monologue is a searing portrait of failed ambition and impotent desire, delivered by one of Britain’s best loved thespians.
