"Nothing is funnier than unhappiness."
by Samuel Beckett
On this Sunday afternoon, April 1 at 2:00 p.m. we're presenting a staged reading of Endgame by Samuel Beckett.
In many ways, this play is quite an interesting thematic bridge between Three Tall Women and our upcoming King Lear.
Endgame, originally written in French and translated into English by Beckett himself, is considered by many critics to be his greatest single work. Samuel Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969; his literary output of plays, novels, stories and poetry has earned him an uncontested place as one of the greatest writers of our time.
Several people who have come to the staged readings in our Ambruster Play-Reading Series have been surprised that a staged reading is a lot like seeing the actual play. The actors have scripts in hand and there's no set, but it's amazing how much of the play you can see and hear. And this play is definitely worth seeing and hearing.
Endgame is directed by Patty Gallagher and features Joe McGrath, Matt Bowdren, David Weynand, and Molly McKasson. Tickets are just $17.
Join us on Sunday afternoon by calling the Rogue box office (520-551-2053) or you can always buy tickets on-line with NO added fees.
Here's to a wonderful week!
