Krapp's Last Tape with Nick Birkinshaw

Graeme Phillips will return to Liverpool's Unity Theatre, where he was artistic director for more than 30 years, with his production of Krapp's Last Tape by Samuel Beckett.

Krapp’s Last Tape tells the story of Krapp listening to old recordings from his younger self on his 69th birthday. Phillips said, "ten years on from directing Beckett’s masterpiece, I now want to bring my experience of living with Parkinson’s Disease to the text, drawing on my personal circumstances of living with short-term memory loss."

The production will be at the Unity for just two performances, with Nick Birkinshaw reviving performance role as Krapp, on 10 and 11 May 2024.
