An old man and a former Sound Director, Johannes Krapp, navigates freely in the Estonian culturology. History is accessible to him, much like to the bards in Ancient Greece who were guided by the muses. He has made it his mission to intervene in history by using a radio to send an important message to the past. The radio is broken and needs to be fixed. Under Krapp's direction, the radio becomes alive and a Woman Announcer intervenes. Together, they begin travelling through time and memory, passing through the last two hundred years of Estonian (musical) history and into the endless archival materials of radio broadcasts.
The play is composed upon the principles of a piece of music.
The historical material has been shattered into fragments by using collage techniques.
Krapp remembers, knows, comments...
Will he be able to send a message to the past?
