Allusions in Popular Culture

The play was memorably parodied in the television sketch comedy The Fast Show, in which - as a reference to Max Wall - fictional music hall comedian Arthur Atkinson played a comically-more stoic version of Krapp. It is also the title of a track on Fredrik Thordendal's solo album Sol Niger Within. A prefiguring of the play, titled, "Krapp, 39" written and performed by Michael Laurence and directed by George Demas, premiered at the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival and begins its commercial run Off Broadway at The Soho Playhouse in New York City on 13 January 2009.
