by Samuel Beckett
Endgame is one of Samuel Beckett’s most revered plays.
Originally staged in French in 1957, the play has four characters - the blind and crippled tyrant, Hamm, his lame and hard of hearing servant Clov and Nell & Nagg, Hamm’s parents who live in dustbins in the corner.
Hamm and Clov live in a perpetual state of symbiosis - despite Clov's threats to leave and die in the wilderness beyond the stage and Hamm's threats to starve Clov, neither can live without each other, and they exist in a constant see-saw of pathos and hatred, love and hope.
The play explores the repetitive nature of beginnings and endings; emptiness and loneliness and compassion and forgiveness.
Although bleak in it’s design and themes, the play is darkly comic with the characters managing to attain heights of tragedy but also a dark hallucinatory humour, often in the same line.
The theatre of the absurd is based on the principle that either everything changes or nothing changes with the implication that life holds no meaning
