Further casting has been announced for Richard Jones’ production of Endgame. Jane Horrocks and Karl Johnson will join the previously announced Alan Cumming and Daniel Radcliffe. Endgame in a double bill with Rough for Theatre II will open at The Old Vic on 4 Feb 2020, with previews from 27 Jan.
Richard Jones directs Beckett’s macabre comedy in which hope and cruelty are the last things to die.
Nothing stirs outside. In a bare room, Hamm, an old, blind tyrant, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted only by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient, dustbin-dwelling parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.
