Carrie Crowley will perform Samuel Beckett's works at the Theatre Royal.

This summer the Theatre Royal will produce two short masterpieces by one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Samuel Beckett.
Footfalls, performed by Waterford actress Carrie Crowley, is a moving and poetic distillation of the relationship of a mother and daughter evoked by two voices as a figure paces on stage.
Carrie Crowley will play May in Beckett’s ‘Footfalls’.
‘Krapp’s Last Tape’, performed by Irish actor and writer Arthur Riordan, is a moving and beautiful evocation of human failure. A man sits in what passes as a study, his only company an old reel to reel tape recorder where he listens to recordings of his younger self.
Arthur Riordan will play Krapp in Samuel Beckett’s ‘Krapp’s Last Tape’. Directed by Ben Barnes, Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal, the plays will preview from Wednesday, June 21st at 8pm (€12). All performances from 8pm to 9.15pm. Ticket prices €17 (€15 concession).
