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.

London Theatre
February 5th, 2020

...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.'

Time Out London
February 5th, 2020

‘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.'

February 5th, 2020

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...'

The London Evening Standard
February 5th, 2020

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...'

What's On Stage (UK)
February 5th, 2020

...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.'

The Times (UK)
February 6th, 2020

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.'

The Independent (UK)
February 5th, 2020

Daniel Radcliffe’s sarky slapstick is brilliant in Endgame, a stark vision of a post-apocalyptic world...Richard Jones’s revival of Samuel Beckett’s play is inspired.'

The Stage (UK)
February 5th, 2020

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.'
