'KRAPP’S LAST TAPE' starring John Hurt and directed by Michael Colgan opens at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in L.A. on 10th October


Following a tremendous response in Washington D.C. and New York last year, the Gate Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape starring John Hurt and directed by Michael Colgan opens at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in L.A. on October 10th, where it will run until November 4th.

Every year on his birthday Krapp sits down to record his memories from the past year. On his 69th birthday listening to his old recordings Krapp stumbles upon a single tender memory from long ago. Recalling his past loves, disappointments and fascinations, Krapp starts to question whether his present lives up to his past.

This production was named ‘Solo Performance of the year’ last year by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times. Just some of the press reaction below:

'In just 55 minutes, the piece captures the essence of a life. That is the genius of Beckett, and it is fully realized here.'
New York Post

'achingly fine performance...Mr. Hurt has the crusty Krapp thoroughly in his well-versed actor’s bones, and there isn’t a moment in his performance in which he is not fully inhabiting the corroded soul of the unforgettable character.'

The New York Times

John Hurt's definitive turn as Krapp.... directed with crackling intelligence by the Gate Theatre of Dublin’s Michael Colgan'
Washington Post

'a tour de force from beginning to end'
Variety

'Hurt plunges into the role so completely that at times you might forget that you’re watching an actor at all.'
Village Voice

Krapp - John Hurt
