Nothing stirs outside. In a bare room, Hamm, an old, blind tyrant confined to a wheelchair, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted only by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.
Richard Jones (The Hairy Ape, Into the Woods) directs Beckett’s macabre comedy in which hope and cruelty are the last things to die.
Endgame will be presented in a double bill with Samuel Beckett’s rarely seen short play Rough for Theatre II, performed by members of the company.

The Old Vic Theatre announces plans to annex a new arts space
As part of the venue's mass redevelopment project, London's Old Vic Theatre has announced today its ambitious plans to annex a new arts space for fostering both young and marginalised talents. The Old Vic's expansion project follows recent renovation trends in London Theatreland.
The Queen's Theatre recently announced its upcoming restoration project that involves repairing damage caused by WWII bombing and renaming the venue the Sondheim Theatre for the grand reopening of Les Miserables. The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is also now closed for a £45 refurbishment and will reopen in autumn 2020 with the highly-anticipated West End transfer of Frozen The Musical.

What's on at The Old Vic for Season 5 (2019-2020)?
The Old Vic Theatre has announced the official line-up for their highly anticipated fifth season with Matthew Warchus as Artistic Director. Aptly stylised as #OVSeason5, the new Old Vic season boasts an unprecedented star-studded cast featuring the likes of Alan Cumming and Daniel Radcliffe, who together star in Samuel Beckett's Endgame, along with The Crown's Matt Smith and Claire Foy, who will reunite to star in the existential Duncan Macmillan play, Lungs.
Also noteworthy are the official performance dates for the previously announced A Very Expensive Poison, which have finally been confirmed following loads of initial hype and buzz last year. The all-new stage adaptation by Lucy Prebble is based on Luke Harding's account of the Alexander Litvinenko assassination.
After receiving a fleet of five-star reviews, Jack Thorne's version of A Christmas Carol directed by Matthew Warchus is also set to return to the venue this holiday season.
Featuring heavy themes of what Warchus has described as 'dark fantasia' and 'contemporary dilemmas', the new politically-charged Old Vic Theatre season is sure to raise the bar high.
Old Vic Season 5 tickets are on sale now! See the official #OVSeason5 line-up below and be sure to book your tickets early to secure the best seats and prices while stocks last. Old Vic shows starring A-list celebrity actors are subject to high demand.
