Krapps Last Tape by Samuel Beckett whih is directed by Michael Colgan at Duchess Theatre from 15 Sep 2010 till 02 Nov 2010.
Following his outstanding performances in Endgame & Eh Joe, Michael Gambon returns to the West End Stage in Beckett’s classic one-man show, Krapp’s Last Tape. Gambon received huge acclaim following his performance in the role of Krapp at the Gate Theatre Dublin earlier this year.
Every year on his birthday self-absorbed Krapp sits down to record his memories from the past year. But on his 69th birthday he takes a step further into the past. Listening to his old recordings he soon stumbles upon a single tender memory from long ago that sparks his growing regret as he starts to question whether his present lives up to his past.
***** Brilliantly captured…impeccably paced, handsomely staged production is a treat and Gambon’s Krapp is beyond reproach’ – Metro
