Two actors who suffer from debilitating, incurable Parkinson’s disease undertake an act of bravery as their swansong to the decades-long professional lives they’ve led - putting on an Off-Broadway production of Samuel Beckett’s comic but difficult masterpiece, Endgame, the play that makes the case that “there’s nothing funnier than unhappiness.”


“There is a gentle, loving quality to every player in this fantastic tale–in spite of the undertones of sadness and pain. Everyone operates from a place of love–which is, in turn, lovingly shared through delicately intimate interviews and candid moments of joy and sorrow” (HorrorBuzz). (APRIL 17-18)

Director’s Statement: Jim Bernfield

Beckett, I think, sees the world as a tortured place where suffering is the norm. The only way to handle it is to take it with a grain of salt. He takes on the world, turns it on its side, shakes it a little bit, shows you what he sees. I, too, see the world as sort of nasty, brutish, and short. But at the same time, I think that he also believes that all we can do is laugh. There's one line in the play, which Chris says: "You're on Earth, there's no cure for that." And that is like my vision that I share with Beckett: We're here, we're kind of stuck with it. I'm with Beckett; make a joke about the hardest situations. (TheaterMania Interview, Feb. 24, 2021)
