John Hurt Krapps Last Tapes

Really looking forward to seeing John Hurt return to the stage in the Gate! It’s one of Beckett’s finest works, and it’s also pretty amazing to see John Hurt on the stage. Beg, borrow or steal! It’s a revival of the show, and only on for two weeks. John Hurt is now 73, and a complete legend of stage and screen, so don’t miss it!
