Boston Center for American Performance opens its season with a pair of short plays from two of the 20th century's most acclaimed modernist playwrights, Nobel Prize-winner Samuel Beckett and Pulitzer Prize-winner Harold Pinter, both from the late '50s. In Krapp's Last Tape, Beckett introduces us to a self-absorbed man who makes a recording each birthday, documenting the events of his year. On his 69th, he gets caught up in listening to his archives and experiences a lifetime of regret. In Pinter's one-act dramedy, two professional killers pass time waiting for their next assignment, while a series of mysterious food orders arrive in a dumbwaiter. The conversation seems nonsensical at first, but the tension between the two men soon begins to build -- and it all ends in a Pinter-esque twist. Learn More
