A pinnacle of Beckett’s characteristic raw minimalism, ENDGAME is a pure and devastating distillation of the human essence in the face of approaching death, and is commonly considered (along with Waiting for Godot) to be his most important work. In full absurdist style, this bizarre and cruel play uses black humor to explore how humans find meaning in a world full of suffering. Steeped in dystopian lore reminiscent of 1984 and The Road, Endgame takes the devastation and paranoia delivered upon society from the Second World War and translates it into a master thesis on despair, indifference, and the human condition.


WHAT IS READER'S THEATRE?

Reader’s theatre was developed as an efficient and effective way to present literature in dramatic form without the effort and expense of mounting full productions. Reader's theatre often uses narration to serve as the framework of dramatic presentation; uses simple and suggestive rather than full stage sets; uses partial and suggestive or neutral and uniform rather than full costumes, and uses scripts openly in performance. Presenting plays as reader's theatre allows us at The 5 & Dime an opportunity to present scripts we otherwise wouldn't be able to produce because of budget limitations or size of cast requirements.


PARKING

Ample free parking is available within a short walking distance of the theatre. Street parking at meters is free during production hours, as is the surface lot adjacent to Burrito Gallery, one block west of the theatre on Adams Street, between Ocean and Main. A pay lot is located directly adjacent to the theatre on Adams.
