Raving Mask Theatre Company

SUMMARY

Raving Mask Theatre Company are bringing Samuel Beckett’s absurdist masterpiece Endgame to Durham’s Empty Shop. Inside a bare and oppressive room the blind and crippled tyrant Hamm and his obedient servant Clov busy themselves in routine to pass the infinite last moments. Hamm’s parents are confined to dustbins in the corner of the room. Outside the world is barren. There are no more people. The only thing left to do is to end. In this bleak yet captivating portrayal of human life, Beckett unsettlingly couples the comedic with the tragic and forces the audience to encounter the absurd nature of life's rituals and our inescapable dependency upon others.

Admission: £6.50(£6)
