Endgame at Questors
Beckett's play is regarded as a classic of twentieth century theatre
Endgame by master of the absurd Samuel Beckett will be performed at The Questors Theatre from 29 September.
Blind autocrat Hamm and his servant-son Clov are trapped together in an apparently post-apocalyptic world. By turns bleak, comic and filled with existential angst, the play is regarded as a classic of twentieth century theatre.
Opening night tickets are half price and the show will run for just eight performances.
“Audiences can expect a play about four people in a room trying to cope with each other and their own mortality. They can expect a play that is poetic, moving and often very funny,” director Simon Roberts said.
Performed by The Questors, the play will be the opening Studio production ahead of an ambitious autumn season of entertaining and intriguing shows.
First performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 1957, this 90-minute drama is full of music hall cross-talk and petty squabbling on the wrong side of sanity. Hell really is other people.
Now entering its 88th year, The Questors Theatre performs 15-20 plays each year in Ealing.
Dates: 29 Sept to 7 Oct, daily at 7.45pm (except Sun and Mon). Sunday matinee at 2.30pm
