The Abreact presents Samuel Beckett's Endgame. Originally published in 1957, "Endgame" is considered one of Samuel Beckett's most important works. In a tiny house by the sea with nothing left outside – no sea, no sun, no clouds – live the mutually dependent protagonists Hamm, an aged blind master who cannot stand, and Clov, his servant who cannot sit. Their days playing out like the end of a chess match, they fight, flatter, thrust and parry, Clov always trying to withdraw from the game, while Hamm insists on finishing the matter once and for all.
The Abreact's production features Charles Reynolds as the slavish Clov, David Schoen (last seen as Estragon in The Abreact's Waiting for Godot) as the wily Hamm, and Dax Anderson and Sarah Galaway as the ancient Nagg and Nell. John Jakary, former director of the Zeitgeist Performance Venue, directs the production.
