Hughie & Krapp's Last Tape
About Hughie & Krapp's Last Tape
In this masterful and memorable double-billing, two-time Tony Award winner Brian Dennehy comes to the Geffen as Erie Smith in Eugene O'Neill's "Hughie" and as Krapp in Samuel Beckett's "Krapp's Last Tape." Reprising roles that have garnered critical and popular acclaim, Dennehy brings searing humanity and his extraordinary dramatic skill to this powerful exploration of the ways two very different men grapple with the realization that their winning odds only diminish with age.

"Krapp's Last Tape" by Samuel Beckett
Preparing for his birthday ritual, Krapp stumbles upon a recording of a tender memory from a lifetime ago. As he immerses himself in his own personal history, Krapp questions whether his present lives up to his past.
