Endgame? Not just yet …

■ Samuel Beckett’s classic play, Endgame, at the Baxter, has been extended until Saturday September 1. The star-studded and multi-award-winning cast is made up of Andrew Buckland, Rob van Vuuren, Antoinette Kellermann and Soli Philander, directed by Sylvaine Strike. Beckett’s work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humour which is why he is considered one of the last modernist writers and one of the key figures in what is called “Theatre of the Absurd”. Endgame explores, with precisely crafted eloquence, the relationship of master and servant; boss clown and underdog and, in some contexts, father and son; parent and child. The laughter triggered when watching the play allows its audience to come to terms with the horror and ecstasy of existence, all at once. There is an age restriction of 12 years and parental guidance is advised. Booking is through Webtickets Pictured are Andrew Buckland and Rob van Vuuren.
