Beckett’s “Endgame” as you’ve never seen it before: in French.

One in a chair. Two in trash cans. One on his feet. All held here by their seemingly inescapable relationship to each other. In the banality of their speech, a man and his servant reveal glimmers of their past and the uncertain future. Repetition and stasis seem to prevail, yet memory, frustration, and longing ripple beneath the surface, threatening disruption.

Performances will be in French, following Beckett’s original French text with new revisions by the playwright, translated into French by the director. There will be English supertitles.

The show runs an hour and a half, and admission is free!  Reserve your tickets here.

“Fin de partie” is presented through special arrangement with Les Éditions de Minuit.
