Krapp’s Last Tape is a story about memory, regret, and the inability to turn back time.. Through body language and movement, James Elston becomes a twisted old man at the end of his life, sitting in a dusty office and listening to voices of his past.
Elston, spitting and coughing though the piece creates this twisted and bitter old man to perfection – dusty old and about to leave this mortal coil we witness his relections and regreats on what has passed
Krapp’s Last Tape is a show that may make you reflect back upon your own losses and regrets of the past, and it may prove to be a warning about not allowing coldness and arrogance consume you before you end up dying alone. It’s a reflection of the past, but a warning for the future.
