Krapp's Last Tape

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Samuel Beckett 

  • Synopsis

    An old man reviews his life and assesses his predicament. We learn about him not from the 69-year-old man on stage, but from his 39-year-old self on the tape he chooses to listen to. On the 'awful occasion' of his birthday, Krapp was then and is now in the habit of reviewing the past year and 'separating the grain from the husks'
