A new production of Samuel Beckett’s play Endgame will be performed at the Old Vic Theatre in early 2020. The play stars Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming, and will be directed by Richard Jones.

Beckett’s macabre comedy was first performed in 1957 at London’s Royal Court Theatre, and the play has since been performed numerous times, often wit high-profile actors taking one of the four roles. Mark Rylance, Miriam Margolyes, and Elaine Strich have all been part of productions. Endgame is considered Beckett’s greatest play, alongside Waiting for Godot.

Endgame stars Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming as Clov and Hamm.

Daniel Radcliffe returns to the Old Vic after his turn in Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in 2017. Radcliffe’s other stage work includes The Cripple of Inishman and Equus. His well-known film work includes the title role of the Harry Potter franchise, The Woman in Black, and Kill Your Darlings.

Alan Cumming has had a long career of acclaimed stage work, including his Olivier Award-winning performance in Accidental Death of an Anarchist in 1990 and as Mac the Knife in the Broadway production of The Threepenny Opera. Cumming has also starred in Cabaret as the Emcee multiple times, earning a Tony Award for his performance in 1998.

Director Richard Jones has had a long career in both opera and theatre. His recent credits include The Hairy Ape, Into the Woods, and The Twilight Zone.

This production of Endgame will be performed in a double bill with Beckett’s lesser-performed work Rough for Theatre II.

A play in which hope and cruelty are the last things to die, Endgame at the Old Vic Theatre is the hot ticket to get for 2020. The play begins performances on January 27th.
