On Krapp’s Last Tape
Tuesday 28th September 2010
Oh, I do so love that ragged community of fellow bloggers who are spread all around the world. From New York, George Hunka has used his excellent Superfluities Redux website to promote a YouTube version of Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, performed by the late Harold Pinter in Ian Rickson’s superb Royal Court production. Not sure about the legality of this webcast, but I am sure as hell very happy that it’s available. Also, from Melbourne, Australia, there is critic Alison Croggon thinking aloud about Martin Crimp’s play, The City. As it happens, I don’t agree with very much that she says, but once again I’m always pleased when people engage with the work — and she certainly does that.
