By Samuel Beckett
Directed by Lukas Brasher-Fons
Samuel Beckett's "Endgame" is a chilling-tragicomedy, centered around four people, living out what remains of their lives in desolation, set in a vaguely post-apocalyptic world, in which most forms of life seem to have vanished. The main characters, Hamm and Clov (a master and servant, respectively), have been together for many years, and have grown mutually dependent. Hamm is blind, and cannot stand, and Clov cannot sit. The other characters are Nagg and Nell, Hamm's legless father and mother, who live in trash-cans, and argue inanely. It is made clear throughout the play that all these characters have a detailed past, however, there is no indication that they may have a future.
Complimentary dessert will be served with the performance.
