Endgame

Endgame

The Old Vic · 27 JAN - 28 MAR

‘Go and get two bicycle-wheels.’ ‘There are no more bicycle-wheels.’ ‘What have you done with your bicycle?’ ‘I never had a bicycle.’

Overview

Nothing stirs outside. In a bare room, Hamm, an old, blind tyrant confined to a wheelchair, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted only by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.

Richard Jones (The Hairy Ape, Into the Woods) directs Beckett’s macabre comedy in which hope and cruelty are the last things to die.

Endgame will be presented in a double bill with Samuel Beckett’s rarely seen short play Rough for Theatre II, performed by members of the company.

Age Recommendation: 14+
