Endgame / Berlin

  • Berliner Ensemble Bertolt-Brecht-Platz Berlin, Berlin, 10117 Germany (map)

Like in most of Samuel Beckett’s texts, Endgame deals with characters outside of society, waiting and looking in vain for something unknown in a nondescript, apocalyptical place. Its characters are bound towards each other by an invisible chain of co-dependency that knows no way out. Contrary to this bleak topic, it is a strikingly funny play with a number of comic elements, physical and verbal.

This poignancy and consequence. This concentration. This severity. This humor. ... No sentimentality, but the echo of a world in turmoil.
— Der Tagesspiegel (Rüdiger Schaper), Dec. 4, 2016

Endgame is Robert Wilson's 10th production at the Berliner Ensemble since 1998.
