Drawing: John Hurt and Sir Michael Gambon in Krapp’s Last Tape

John Hurt001Michael Gambon001

KRAPP’S LAST TAPE is a one-act play for one actor by Samuel Beckett. I first saw it performed by John Hurt at the New Ambassadors Theatre in London in March, 2000. It’s genre is  described as ‘minimalist monodrama’. It’s Krapp’s 69th birthday and he hauls out his old tape recorder, listens to a recording he did 30 years earlier, before making a new one.

Sir Michael Gambon performed a revival at the Duchess Theatre in October 2010.
