About the show

The Old Vic Theatre has decided to cancel all remaining performances of Endgame from 16th March due to public health concerns over Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming star in a Samuel Beckett double bill: Endgame and Rough for Theatre II. Catch this starry revival at the Old Vic from 27 January 2020.

Samuel Beckett's one-act play Endgame is among his most famous and acclaimed works. The macabre comedy premiered at the Royal Court theatre in 1957. The playwright was very specific that his stage directions be followed in all ensuing productions. Rough for Theatre II (also known by the title Theatre II) is one of Beckett's short plays, written around 1960. It is rarely performed.

Alan Cumming (Bent, The Threepenny Opera) stars as Hamm alongside Daniel Radcliffe (Equus, The Cripple of Inishmaan) as Clov, with support from Jane Horrocks (The Rise and Fall of Little Voice) and Karl Johnson (Peterloo).

Richard Jones (The Hairy Ape, Into the Woods) directs.

This darkly delicious double bill of Endgame and Rough for Theatre II is brought to life by a leading pair of phenomenal actors. Catch it at the Old Vic from 27 January 2020.
