Writing about the pointlessness of existence and making us laugh about it. One of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett, could do that like no other. 

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’.  

 

From the press: 

"Samuel Beckett peels life to the core" (Telegraaf ★★★★)
"Escape from Beckett's absurdism is impossible" (NRC ★★★★)

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.
