"Krapp's Last Tape" in Encore Shows Oct. 18 & 19
Play by Nobel Laureate Samuel Beckett


The Liberty Free Theatre presents "Krapp's Last Tape," by Nobel Laureate Samuel Beckett, is returning to the stage Oct. 18 and 19, 7:30 pm, at Arts on the Lake, at the Lake Carmel Arts Center in Kent Cliffs, NY.


Paul Austin will be featured as Krapp in this one-act, one-man production, first performed in 1959 at the Schiller theater in Berlin, Germany. 


Samuel Beckett (photo left) was born in 1906 and died in 1989. His large output of plays, screenplays, poetry and fiction arguably provide the most telling chronicle of the existential spirit of 20th Century life. "Krapp's Last Tape" is a masterful evocation of the conflict between the need for human intimacy and the drive to find a personal vision. 


The New York Times referred to it as a "piercing commentary on the vaporous quality of happiness." 


Paul Austin (photo right, in this production) is the Founder and Director of the Liberty Free Theatre. He has worked extensively all across the country as actor, director, writer and teacher.  


For reservations and information, call Arts on the Lake at (845) 228-2685, or the Liberty Free Theatre at (845) 798-1527.



"Red" Returning to CAS & DVAA

We continue bringing our work to venues around the county with two new reading performances of "Red" by John Logan, one in a co-production with the Catskill Art Society, scheduled for Oct. 11th at 7:30 pm, and a second with the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance in Narrowsburg on Oct. 26th. The play runs approximately 90 minutes.

At the Catskill Art Society,  the production will be followed by a free reception. Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $25. Advance reservations are highly recommended as seating is limited. Proceeds will benefit CAS. For reservations, call 845-436-4227 or e-mail info@catskillartsociety.org.

More details about the DVAA production will be announced soon.

"Red" chronicles the story of the painter Mark Rothko, and his aspiring assistant, as Rothko tries to fulfill the commission for the Seagram's Murals, which became masterpieces of 20th Century art. The New York Times called the play "Intense and exciting...." The New Yorker said it was "Smart, eloquent entertainment...behind its wallop is a lot of learning...." 


Paul Austin will be Mark Rothko in the production, and Bradley Duiguid is expected to once again perform as his assistant. For more information call or email Liberty Free Theatre at (845) 798-1527, libertyfree1@verizon.net.
