Endgame

Gate Theatre, Friday 11th February - Saturday 26th March

You’re on earth. There’s no cure for that…

From Broadway director Danya Taymor comes a stunning revival of Samuel Beckett’s comic-tragic masterpiece Endgame.

Beckett’s classic centres on the fractious relationship between irascible tyrant Hamm (Frankie Boyle) and his boy-servant, Clov (Robert Sheehan). An apocalyptic, nihilistic and darkly funny tale, the play also features Hamm’s parents, Nagg (Seán McGinley) and Nell (Gina Moxley), living in dustbins, tossed aside by an uncaring world.

Although now 65 years since the premiere of its original production, Endgame remains an urgent and strikingly relevant work that speaks to the existential and absurdist challenges of our time.

Please note that entry to the venue will be conditional on the health guidelines at the time of performance and not at the time of ticket purchase.
