Endgame, Nobel Prize-winning playwright Samuel Beckett’s favorite play, is a tragicomedy of epic proportions. Written in a macabre intensity of mood, it tells the story of Hamm (John Douglas Thompson), who is reduced to living in one room, in which he sits blind and chair-bound. His only escape from his solitary world is the company of his aging, legless parents (Joe Grifasi and Patrice Johnson), who live in garbage bins, and his shuffling servant, Clov (Bill Irwin), who is at his beck and call, and who, like a dog, comes when whistled for. The only thing left for Hamm is to wait for the inevitable end. A pinnacle of Beckett’s characteristic raw minimalism, Endgame is a pure and devastating distillation of the human essence in the face of approaching death.

Through a partnership with The League of Live Stream Theater, the final four performances of Endgame will be simulcast online. More information is available at
