A Taste of Beckett: Footfalls & Krapp’s Last Tape (2017)
A TASTE OF BECKETT
June & July 2017
Footfalls, performed by Waterford actress Carrie Crowley, is a moving and poetic distillation of the relationship of a mother and daughter evoked by two voices as a figure paces back and forth on a darkened stage.
Krapp's Last Tape, performed by Irish actor and writer Arthur Riordan, is a moving and beautiful evocation of human failure and despair and is Beckett's great study in loneliness and isolation. A man sits in what passes as a study, his only company an old reel to reel tape recorder where he listens to recordings of his younger self and prepares to record what may well be his last tape.
Directed by Ben Barnes, Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal
