After his acclaimed Revolutionary Road, director Erik Whien is now bringing Beckett's Eindspel (Endgame) to the stage. Eindspel takes place in a deserted world. Four characters refuse to give up, even when everything around them has almost perished. The end is in sight. But as long as there’s still time, they will go on. They will play their ‘endgame’.

About Samuel Beckett
Samuel Beckett's work is a great inspiration for director Erik Whien. With his clear use of language and minimal setting, he creates a world in which major life questions come to light. How do you deal with finitude? It is this question that Beckett tackles with so much absurdity and gaming pleasure that it contains a moving answer.
