About This Show

“Nothing is funnier than unhappiness” in the absurdist world of Samuel Beckett. Such is the case in Endgame, considered to be his greatest single work. Told with Beckett’s signature macabre humor, this “grim joke on the futility of life” (The New York Times) finds four characters somewhere between life and death as they prepare for oblivion.
