Bristol Old Vic presents a double bill of Pinter's A Kind of Alaska and Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape.It is on from 5 Apr - 12 May.  There will also be post-show discussions on 18, 25 Apr and 2, 9 May 2012.  The productions are directed by Simon Godwin and designed by Mike Britton.

"Two short plays by Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter in a rare pairing that brings together two of the most influential writers of the twentieth century.

A Kind of Alaska: Deborah wakes after 29 comatose years to a reality she cannot accept, relationships she does not remember and a body she no longer knows. In this brief awakening, she begins to understand that she has spent the prime of her life like this, trapped within a waking sleep.Krapp's Last Tape: On his birthday, a sixty-nine year old Krapp listens to a recording of his younger self. But, after a life of failure, withdrawal and physical decline, the youthful idealism that confronts him makes the passing of time even more acute."
