Beckett's inscription reads: "for Teresita with love from Sam London, 1.3.84".

A one act play, with nothing but the title character and a tape recorder on stage, Krapp's Last Tape was written for the Irish actor Patrick Magee in 1958. It was originally performed as a curtain-raiser for Endgame, though continues to be performed as a stand alone feature to this day.

Teresita Garcia-Suro, costume designer and actress who worked with Rick Cluchey as part of the San Quentin Drama Workshop. She worked with Beckett when he directed performances of Krapp's Last Tape and Endgame staged at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in 1980. She married Rick Cluchey, founder of the San Quentin Drama Workshop, who has also cheekily added his ownership inscription

In March 1984, both Garcia-Suro and Cluchey were in London with Beckett who was overseeing a staging of Godot, directed by Walter Asmus that was due to feature at the Adelaide Festival in Australia that year. Cluchey played Pozzo.
