Season Zero: Krapp’s Last Tape

Krapp’s Last Tape, by Samuel Beckett, was presented September 10-19, 2015, in what was intended to be a one-off production. The experience went well enough, however, that we decided to form a new company dedicated to producing the kind of theatre that we loved, but felt was underrepresented in Memphis theatre offerings. It was performed at Voices of the South, in conjunction with Beckett’s short “Ohio Impromptu.”
