Returning to the Company following his triumph in Red, Colin Friels commands the stage in Samuel Beckett’s renowned black burlesque masterpiece, whose laughter at the world is always humane.

In a bare room where two windows look out on desolation, four little lives go on. In this petty realm, Hamm is enthroned, blind and old, immobile and unmoved. His aged parents, Nagg and Nell, own nothing but their fading memories. His servant Clov, upstanding and downtrodden, hobbles about performing his ritual duties, keeping things going for all of them. Four pieces in someone else’s game, playing out their final moves.

With a set design from eminent visual artist Callum Morton and a cast that also includes MTC favourites Julie Forsyth (Private Lives) and Luke Mullins (The Season at Sarsaparilla), MTC’s Associate Artistic Director Sam Strong’s production will drive us laughing towards the dark.
