Mr. Beckett’s play ponders the basic questions of life: If you could change one choice in your past, what would it be? How would your life have been different? What is the price of regret? Beckett’s “everyman” looks back and peers into the mirror of love lost and a life squandered, observing his recorded history at the end of his life.
The play is starring Steve Garland as "Krapp".
T. SCOTT WOOTEN is from the great state of Arkansas, a product of its third largest city: Jonesboro. He attended Arkansas State University where he received a BFA in Theatre Directing and Performance. On the side he and two friends created a sketch comedy television show entitled The Super Terrific Happy Hour. Together they wrote over 60 comedy sketches for the show -- one of which, Imaginary Friend, won third place in The National Broadcasting Society’s T.O.T.A.L. Regional Conference (Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana). At the ASU theatre department, Mr. Wooten costarred in many productions including Rumors, Never the Sinner, Lone Star, and The Beaux' Stratagem. As a stage director he was responsible for three successful student productions of The Dumbwaiter, The Mime Crime, and No Exit. Upon graduation he came to American Stage as an intern in 2003, then became Artistic Assistant in 2005. In 31 months of service with American Stage, he has worked backstage in various crew positions; Assistant Directed thirteen productions; Directed the 2004 production of The Santaland Diaries for the Mainstage; costarred in A Moon for the Misbegotten, Spinning Into Butter, The Drawer Boy, three School Tours, the last of the two years of Shakespeare in the Park; and has written 4 full-length plays and over 20 short plays.

In addition, two of his short plays have been selected by the annual “Theatre Walk” in Gulfport for production this year. He was also showcased in the January 2006 issue of The Weekly Planet as an “[Artist to Watch] Under 25”. Mr. Wooten wears and has worn many hats for the good of the theatre, and will always work and serve the business that makes him happy -- the theatre. Mr. Wooten frequently enjoys bananas then tosses the peels in the way of unsuspecting foot traffic.
