Languishing between life and death, the tyrant Hamm and his dutiful but resentful companion Clov are irrevocably bound to one another. They pass their days in a filthy, bare room, caught in a loop of futile routines. Their endless and brutal verbal jousting match is punctured only by the nostalgic reminiscing of Hammâs parents, reduced to living in rubbish bins. Endgame makes a grim joke of life, and finds laughter in the darkness. Director Dominic Hill brings his talent for gripping and absorbing contemporary interpretations of classic texts to Beckettâs masterpiece. A stellar cast is led by David Neilson and Chris Gascoyne (better known as Coronation street's Roy Cropper and Peter Barlow) with Peter Kelly and Barbara Rafferty. ENDGAME BY SAMUEL BECKETT âNothing is funnier than unhappiness.â A Citizens Theatre and HOME, Manchester co-production

A fatherâs horrifying sacrifice of his daughter sets in motion a cycle of bloody revenge and counter-revenge. His family rots from the inside as a result of his brutal act and the loyalties of his surviving children are pushed to the extreme. The curse that has gripped the family for generations looks as if it will never end. A TRILOGY OF PLAYS This Restless House is presented in two instalments.
