Confusing, Absurdist, Boring, Clever, Great acting
About the Show
Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cummings star in a London revival of Samuel Beckett's intimate drama.
Considered Samuel Beckett's sequel to "Waiting for Godot", this play follows a blind and paralyzed man and his servant who both await a mysterious 'end'. The cast includes stars of the stage and screen, Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cummings in the title roles.
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.'
...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.'
