Come and Go


Synopsis: Three similar figures of "indeterminable"age, Flo, Vi, and Ru, sit quietly on a narrow bench, surrounded by darkness. The three characters wear once-colorful full-length coats, dulled over time. When together they make uneasy small talk. As characters leave the space, one at a time, in turn, all three women at one point occupy the central position and all become privy to a secret about one of the others.

Play


Synopsis: In three urns side by side are encased two women and a man. The style is brilliantly abstract, ranging from choruses of existential oblivion to ruminations and reiterations of a common experience that ended unhappily for a man, his wife and his mistress.

Endgame


Synopsis: A pinnacle of Beckett’s characteristic raw minimalism, Endgame is a pure and devastating distillation of the human essence in the face of approaching death.  Endgame, originally written in French and translated into English by Beckett himself, is considered by many critics to be his greatest single work.
