    Spare, enigmatic, and absurdly funny, Endgame is one of the greatest dramas of the modern age. Both an existential comedy and a domestic tragedy, it charts a day in the life of a family fallen on mysteriously hard times - blind and chair-bound Hamm, his beleaguered servant Clov, his parents Nagg and Nell, who live in two ashbins and long for sugar-plums, and a black toy dog with a missing leg. Beckett's language is honed to a distilled beauty, and his archetypal characters achieve a poetic grace despite their bizarre condition. Fifty years after it burst onto the world's stages, Endgame is as exquisite and surprising as ever.

      This play showcases great ART actors in one of Beckett's great works. It's a fantastic production of this chilling and hilarious work.
