Summary

In Beckett’s critically acclaimed play, an aging man, who lives a lonely and shabby existence in a darkened room, listens to a taped recording of himself as a young man.

A tour-de-force for one man, is the most affectionate portrait of a character that Beckett has ever done: an aging man who lives a lonely and shabby existence in a darkened room. At year’s end, he takes out a bottle of wine, a banana and his tape recorder, and he listens as his own voice from the past recounts the glories and hopes of his youth.
