Waiting for Godot may be Beckett’s best known play, but Endgame is the work critics, and admirers claim as his greatest, most profound play.
Hamm, a crippled master in some apocalyptic future, and Clov, his servant, play out a comic farce of tragic stature, brilliantly subverted by dark comic values, and wit. Originally written in French as Fin de partie, Endgame was Beckett’s favorite play, or as Beckett himself put it “the one I dislike the least.”
April 13, 14, 15, 16, 21,22, 23, 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 17 2 p.m.

“Beckett’s world is the world of a battered heavyweight twitching and groaning on the canvas. It is the twitches and the groans – the confused memories of having once stood erect, and the dazed hope of rising again – which give movement, and pathos, and the truth to his remarkable plays.” – Philip Toynbee, 20th C. writer
