About this show

Rude Mechanicals ends their season with Samuel Beckett's absurdist masterpiece, Endgame. The story details the relationship between a blind old man in a wheelchair, Hamm and his servant and eyes, Clov. It is peppered with banter from Hamm's parents, Nagg and Nell, both legless and placed in separate ashbins against the wall. Though they perceive the world to be dead, everyday is an awful routine with the same extended farce, the same bickering cruelty, the same all-encompassing selfishness and stupidity. Only Beckett could create such a world and make observing it so enjoyable and entertaining.
