Paul Austin will bring Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape to Arts on the Lake, 640 Route 52, Lake Carmel, for two performances, Friday, Oct. 18, and Saturday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m.

Part of the output of plays, screenplays, poetry and fiction of Nobel Laureate Samuel Beckett, the play Krapp’s Last Tape presents a 69-year-old man celebrating his birthday by reassessing a passage in his life from 30 years before, captured via a tape recorder.

Austin, who is the Founder and Director of the Liberty Free Theatre, brought the well-received Audience by Vaclav Havel to Arts on the Lake four seasons ago.

Although best known for Waiting for Godot, Irish-born Beckett has a 16-volume Collected Works that spans most of the 20th century.

Austin has acted and directed On- and Off-Broadway and his television appearances include West Wing, Law and Order and The Cosby Show. His film appearances include Tune in Tomorrow and Sommersby.

Tickets for the one-hour performance ($12 public admission, $10 for AotL members and students) can be purchased in advance at artsonthelake.org. Reservations may be made by calling 845-228-2685.

A talk-back with the performer and guests will follow each performance.
