Krapp’s Last Tape with Go On

About Krapp’s Last Tape with Go On

Everyone talks to themselves…don’t they? This thought-provoking double bill takes things one step further and explores what happens when you dare to interact with previous and future versions of yourself.

In Samuel Beckett’s seminal Krapp’s Last Tape, an older man reflects on his youth. Sitting alone on his 69th birthday, Krapp (Niall Buggy) listens to a recording of his younger self, rewinding through his life with humour and heartache.

In Go On, Jane (Maureen Beattie) considers how an AI replacement might allow her to exist in the future. Sitting in her sleek kitchen, Jane teaches Jayne the essentials of her life, and the loves and losses that have shaped her.

Inspired by Beckett’s iconic work, Go On is the world premiere of a new play by one of Scotland’s most important voices, Linda McLean. Together, these stripped-back and intimate productions offer a raw and emotional experience that speaks to our own sense of mortality with a wry, dark humour.

Two leading actors of their generation, Niall Buggy and Maureen Beattie are directed by Dominic Hill, renowned for his “talent for classical drama which is genuinely world class.” (Daily Telegraph).
