Often categorized in Theatre of the Absurd, Endgame along with Waiting for Godot is considered Samuel Beckett’s more definitive works. Endgame may best be summarised by the following words spoken by Nell, a character in the play who is trapped in an ashbin:
Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that…it’s the most comical thing in the world…we laugh, we laugh, with a will, in the beginning, but it’s always the same thing. Like the funny story we hear too often — we still find it funny, but we don’t laugh anymore.

The tragic, yet comic outlook at the bleakness of human predicament makes this play timeless.

Come join us on Sunday the 1st of October as we journey through Beckett’s world!

Samuel Beckett was an Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet, who wrote in both English and French. Widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century, Beckett’s work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humor. Beckett was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature and died in 1989.
