About the Show/Event
Information for Krapp's Last Tape/Eh Joe/The Old Tune at Jermyn Street Theatre, Inner London (Play). Trevor Nunn directs a triple bill of plays with an all-star cast including Lisa Dwan, James Hayes, Niall Buggy and David Threlfall. In Krapp's Last Tape, James Hayes plays the 69-year-old Krapp as he listens and responds to the cassette tapes he recorded in his youth. In Eh Joe, Niall Buggy interacts with the voice of celebrated Beckett specialist Lisa Dwan. And in The Old Tune, adapted by Beckett from a radio play by Robert Pinget, receiving its first London production since the 1960s, Buggy and David Threlfall pass the time by remembering - and misremembering - the past. Trevor Nunn said: "The focus of these plays is Beckett's fascination with memory. All three are universal but also emphatically Irish."
Approximate runtime 135minutes (including any interval).
Performers Lisa Dwan, James Hayes, Niall Buggy, David Threlfall.
