Produced by Main Street Theatre in the Tremors Festival
April 18 – 28, 2012
Little Mountain Studios (195 East 26th Ave at Main)
The setting for Endgame is a bare, partially underground room, serving as shelter for Hamm the master, Clov his servant, and Hamm’s father and mother, Nagg and Nell (who live in garbage cans). Hamm is in a wheelchair and makes Clov move him around the room, fetch objects, and look out the window for signs of life. Outside all seems dead and nothing happens. Inside, the characters pass the time mortifying each other and toying with fears and illusions of a possible change, all along sensing the inevitability of their end. Main Street Theatre continues their exploration of contemporary classics in intimate settings with their much-anticipated mounting of Beckett’s masterpiece.
