Considered to be one of Samuel Beckett’s best works, Endgame will play at the Old Vic in early 2020 starring Alan Cumming and Daniel Radcliffe. Originally written in French and translated into English, the play is over six decades old but continues to entertain today. Richard Jones directs the dark, macabre comedy where hope and cruelty are the last things to die.
Alan Cumming will play Hamm in Endgame. 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 will play Clov in Endgame. 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.
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 will be presented with Beckett’s Rough for Theatre II as a double bill, performed by members of the company.
