'Krapp’s Last Tape' by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Nuno Carinhas

In 'Krapp's Last Tape', a one-act play by Samuel Beckett, Krapp listens to recordings he made decades earlier when he was in the prime of his life. For Krapp, the voice in the recorded diary is that of a naive and foolish stranger. Though he rants violently about the young Krapp's hope and idealism, he is drawn to the recorded voice of his younger, hopeful self.
