Endgame by Samuel Beckett

October 4 to October 28, 2007

What would it entail to produce a self-proclaimed “avant-garde” Beckett play these days? Red Tape Theatre takes a stab at the answer with a stark and resourceful interpretation of “Endgame,” transforming what seems like a gym on the second floor of a church into an inspired, decomposing kind of crypt, complete with crumbling plaster and dank carpeting. The smart set design alone comprises a lesson in technical theater, and the play’s thematic absurdism extends artfully into mischievous costumes… Robert L. Oakes makes an inspired Clov, balancing clownishness with humanity… Monica Westin, Windy City Times
