LAST of the Summer Wine star Tom Owen brings his Edinburgh Festival success to the Broadbent Theatre in Wickenby this week.

Krapp’s Last Tape is a monodrama written by Samuel Beckett and tells the story of Krapp, a man on his 69th birthday, reviewing tapes he made on previous birthdays.

As he listens to a tape he made 30 years ago, the audience gets an insight into the man’s life.

Krapp is an infirm old man, clearly approaching the end of his life – not a character often used as a lead, and it’s quite a performance.

After the play, there will be the chance to meet Tom Owen as he holds a question and answer session.

Tickets for the performance, on Friday, October 12, at 7.30pm, cost £8.50 and £7 prepaid from www.broadbent.org or 01673 885500.

There is a £1 surcharge for tickets purchased on the door rather than pre-paid.
