Theatre: Krapp's Last Tape

By Samuel Beckett
Directed and performed by Robert Wilson
His Majesty's Theatre

Krapp’s Last Tape, the short play by Samuel Beckett brought to His Majesty’s Theatre by the preeminent American theatre artist Robert Wilson for the Festival of Perth, is a work of forcible noise and long silences.
In one of those silences, the sound of someone sobbing could clearly be heard in the audience. I’m unable to say whether it was from high emotion engendered by Mr Wilson’s performance, or because she was desperate to escape from the theatre.
