Three Short Plays by Samuel Beckett featuring Rough for Radio II, The Old Tune, and Krapp’s Last Tape
Among Beckett’s most autobiographical works, Rough for Radio II, The Old Tune, and Krapp’s Last Tape explore universal questions of creativity, memory, aging, sex, friendship, and the proximity of death. These plays from his mid-career are traditionally viewed as individual statements, but the three provide a wealth of impressions when placed in conversation with one another, giving us a better understanding of the legendary playwright’s intellect, passion, and temperament.
This production features Will Lyman, familiar to Boston audiences for his many roles at CSC and other theaters, and his decades of narrating Frontline on PBS.
