Well-acted, Funny, Absurdist

See it if you like absurdist plays (else you will not enjoy it even if you like Cumming and/or Radcliffe).

Don't see it if you don't like absurdist plays and want a clear plot that makes complete and total sense. Read more

Nonsensical beckett, Boring, Dated

See it if you're a fan of the actors. They do amazing with that the text gives.

Don't see it if The whole style/concept of the show is dated. It was ground breaking and nonsensical 60 years ago, but now it is just nonsense.

Disappointing, Boring, Excruciating, Absurdist

See it if You are a fan of Daniel Radcliffe. That's about the only reason to see this.

Don't see it if Two one act plays. Didn't care for either of them, both felt pointless. Couldn't wait for it to end.

The London Evening Standard

Endgame is never less than demanding, but Richard Jones’s rigorously clear production nicely balances comic absurdity with despair....Radcliffe and Alan Cumming also have the exquisite timing and rhythm of a seasoned double act...'

‘Endgame’...can be far more ominous and chilly; here it almost has the air of a surrealist sitcom...Daniel Radcliffe shows off his gifts for physical comedy in this uncharacteristically fun night of Beckett.'

Daniel Radcliffe lacks magic in this theatrical non-starter...in this case the issue isn’t so much with any fancy directorial conceit as the chemistry, and plausibility, of the players...'

Beckett adds some knockabout moments but the piece is bottom-of-the-drawer fare...Cumming creates the illusion that it is weightier than it is.'

...what I loved about Richard Jones' assured production of Endgame is that he is prepared to dispense with many of the Beckett clichés while remaining true to the author's intent.'

London Theatre

...this is mostly a strenuous, laboured evening that feels a lot longer than it is...There are two brilliant cameo turns from...Jane Horrocks and Karl Johnson...but they can't save it anymore than they can save themselves.'

Beckett played for laughs...Alan Cumming and Daniel Radcliffe lead a lively double bill...a richly engaging evening, though one that skirts real profundity.'

Jones breathes new life into a play at risk of choking on its own aspic. By majoring on comedy, he shows how even at the bitter end, maybe especially then, life remains completely absurd.'
