Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming star in a revival of Samuel Beckett's Endgame at the Old Vic. Richard Jones directs this dark, macabre comedy that's over sixty years old in a tale where hope and cruelty are the last things to die.
Alan Cumming plays Hamm. The Tony Award-winning actor is perhaps best known for his portrayal of the Emcee in Cabaret in the 1990s, playing the role in the West End and on Broadway and in the 2014 Broadway revival. Cumming’s extensive theatre credits include The Bacchae in Edinburgh, London and New York, the titular role in Macbeth and The Seagull.
Daniel Radcliffe plays Clov. Having played the title role in the Harry Potter films from 2001 to 2011, Radcliffe is a recognisable actor around the world, however he made his acting debut in a BBC adaptation of David Copperfield. Previous theatre credits include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at the Old Vic, The Cripple of Inishmaan at the Noel Coward Theatre and Alan Strang in Equus at the Gielgud Theatre.
The cast is completed by Jane Horrocks as Nell, whose theatre credits include The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Cabaret, East is East as well as starring in the Pinter at the Pinter season. Karl Johnson plays Nagg, previously appearing in Old Vic productions of King Lear and As You Like It.
In a bare room, Hamm, an old, blind tyrant, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient, dustbin-dwelling parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.
Endgame is presented as a double bill with Samuel Beckett’s Rough for Theatre II, performed by members of the company.
