The Berkshire Theatre Festival presents its production of Samuel Beckett's ENDGAME, directed by Eric Hill. The production features David Chandler (Clov), Mark Corkins (Hamm), Tanya Dougherty (Nell), and Randy Harrison (Nagg).
Press material for the production states, "If there's anyone to find humor in the world's dying breaths, it's Samuel Beckett. Following the success of BTF's 2008 production of Waiting for Godot, Endgame presents an absurdist's vision of a future where time and reason are little more than suggestions, with characters as memorable as they are miserable. And wrapped up in the hilarity, in true Beckett style, is a brutally honest commentary on life and death. Never has 'The End' seemed so bizarre- or so incredibly funny."
David Chandler's Broadway credits include LOST IN YONKERS, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, and AMERICAN CLOCK. He has also appeared in many Off-Broadway productions, including UNDERNEATH THE LINTEL, THE SWAN, and SLAVS!, as well as numerous regional productions. His television credits include 'The Grey Zone,' 'Death of a Salesman,' and 'Seinfeld.'
Mark Corkins has worked extensively with both the Milwaukee Repertory Theater and American Players Theare. His credits include KING LEAR, DRACULA, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, and TRUE WEST. He also helped found the Resident Ensemble Players, affiliated with the University of Delaware.
Tanya Dougherty is a graduate student in Brandeis University's MFA Acting program. Her credits include LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST, FUNNYHOUSE OF A NEGRO, EVERYTHING IN THE GARDEN, HECUBA, and SIDDARTHA.
Randy Harrison has previously appeared in six productions with the Berkshire Theatre Festival, including GHOSTS, WAITING FOR GODOT, and MRS. WARREN'S PROFESSION. His other credits include Broadway's WICKED, as well as THE GLASS MENAGERIE, EDWARD THE SECOND, and ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA.
ENDGAME will begin previews on July 6 and will open officially on July 10. It will then run until July 24. For more information, including a full schedule of performances, visit www.berkshiretheatre.org.
