San Francisco's critically acclaimed Cutting Ball Theater continues its 2008 season with Samuel Beckett's Endgame. Rob Melrose directs this modern take on one of Beckett's most important works.
With a uniquely San Franciscan bent (all of the action takes place in a run-down Victorian house), Cutting Ball's production follows the attacks and parries of the world's last four remaining inhabitants, two of whom dwell in trash cans. A profound, introspective look at the game that man constantly plays and in which he is always checkmated, this absurdist masterpiece examines civilization as it is about to end, and explores what can happen when there are very few people left.
