Gate Theatre Dublin's production of

Krapp's Last Tape

{{ event.webContent.titleSuffix }}

Oct 9 – Nov 4, 2012

Kirk Douglas Theatre

A dramatic poem of genius…executed by the brilliantly talented John Hurt.

Two-time Academy Award® nominee John Hurt spins the tale of a lifetime.

It’s the rarest of opportunities: to witness an actor of this caliber give his definitive performance on the intimate Douglas stage.

John Hurt (The Elephant Man, Alien, Harry Potter) makes his Los Angeles stage debut in a role he has crafted on London, Dublin, and New York stages over the past decade.

As Krapp takes stock of his life unspooling on a battered old tape recorder, we become privy to a lifetime of wisdom. The New York Times praised Hurt for fully inhabiting the corroded soul of the unforgettable character.

If you loved Beckett’s hugely popular Waiting for Godot at the Mark Taper Forum, don’t miss this mesmerizing production of his work directed by Michael Colgan, Artistic Director of Gate Theatre Dublin, one of the truest sources of the Irish theatrical tradition.
