Krapp’s Last Tape by Samuel Beckett (EXTENDED) | Theatre Passe Muraille | Wednesday, 17. January 2018

***The extended run of Krapp's Last Tape is now sold out. We've added one final extension (and an additional matinee) . Please see website for details. We suggest booking now if you'd like to see the show.***

The calendar year of 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of Theatre Passe Muraille. To celebrate we have a number of events happening throughout the year highlighting the people and ideas that have made our institution what it is today. To kick off the events we are supporting Singing Swan Productions as they put on Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape performed by Bob Nasmith. We couldn’t imagine getting to fifty without Bob and are proud he is helping us celebrate with this performance.

About the show: On his birthday Krapp enters into a dark room and sits quietly. After some time he listens to tapes on a reel-to-reel recorder. The tapes document stories from his past that he is forced to review. Krapp’s Last Tape highlights the best of Beckett, showcasing his signature blend of dark humor and existential musing. Performed by iconic Canadian actor Bob Nasmith - Emeritus Board Member at Theatre Passe Muraille and a man who has performed at our theatre for decades - the show is a stark examination of life compared to living.

“Bob Nasmith is a theatre warrior and a legend. He wears the story of his life on his body and in his voice where I recognize Passe Muraille's master of our tenacious spirit of resistance. Beckett's play is a fascinating archaeological dig into the life of a man. When the two meet on stage, I will go, eagerly, to watch entropy in action. To discover and to think. And to witness the world as it falls apart.” – Paul Thompson, Theatre Passe Muraille Artistic Director 1972-1981
