John Hurt in 
Krapp’s Last Tape

November 29-December 4, 2011
Lansburgh Theatre

Alone on his 69th birthday, a man prepares for his own “party” of sorts, surrounded by volume after volume of a life on tape. Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt’s performance in Samuel Beckett’s masterful solo-study has been heralded as “perfection” and “unmissable” (The Independent) in this production from the Gate Theatre in Dublin. Tickets start at $75.

FELA! and Krapp’s Last Tape are currently only available to 2011-2012 full season subscribers and members at the Donor level ($250) and above; these individuals also receive 10% off tickets to these shows. For tickets or details, call 202.547.1122. Read more.

Tickets will be made available to the general public later this spring.
