From Commonweath Shakespeare Company:
Beckett in Brief, at Babson College in April and May, features three of Samuel Beckett’s most autobiographical works, Rough for Radio II, The Old Tune, and Krapp’s Last Tape. These works explore universal questions of creativity, memory, aging, sex, friendship, and the proximity of death. These plays from his mid-career are traditionally viewed as individual statements, but the three provide a wealth of impressions when placed in conversation with one another, giving us a better understanding of the legendary playwright’s intellect, passion, and temperament. This production features Will Lyman, familiar to Boston audiences for his many roles at CSC and other theaters, and his decades of narrating Frontline on PBS.
