The play will be performed in Tyrant Studios, the company’s newly renovated performance venue located above the historic Penthouse Nightclub. Recently converted by the company to a studio theatre, these upstairs rooms once hosted exclusive parties and performances by music legends like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr, and Frank Sinatra.

Krapp’s Last Tape: Rarely produced professionally in Vancouver, Krapp’s Last Tape is a timeless portrait of an aging artist who has given up the possibility of love in exchange for a life of fruitless artistic expression. The Off-Broadway sensation, a tour-de-force for one man, is the most affectionate portrait of a character that Beckett has ever written: an aging man who lives a lonely and shabby existence in a darkened room. At year’s end, he takes out a bottle of wine, a banana and his tape recorder, and he listens as his own voice from the past recounts the glories and hopes of his youth.

Samuel Beckett was born on April 13, 1906, in Dublin, Ireland. During the 1930s and 1940s he wrote his first novels and short stories. He wrote a trilogy of novels in the 1950s as well as famous plays like Waiting for Godot. In 1969 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. His later works included poetry and short story collections and novellas. He died on December 22, 1989 in Paris, France.

“Krapp’s Last Tape” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
