ACT’s phenomenal run of Beckett’s ENDGAME has more than just the legendary Bill Irwin to brag about. Now it has us!
Join us following the 8 p.m. performance on Thursday, May 24, as Killing My Lobster presents a hilarious spin on the themes and characters of some of Beckett’s most famous works, from Endgame and Play to Waiting for Godot.
The performance will begin 15 minutes after the final curtain (approximately 10:15 p.m.). Possible sketches include “Hunger End Games,” “Cooking with Clov,” and a speed-dating sketch featuring Beckett characters.
Admission is free, and we’ll be on ACT’s mainstage! There might even be a special guest appearance by… Tony Award Winning Actor Bill Irwin.
We were able to sit down with the actors of “Plays With Beckett” and ask a few questions. Here’s what they had to say:
~If you had to repeat an action over and over and over again, what would it be?
Trying to get the parachute to open. (Rowan Brooks)
Riding my bike across the Golden Gate bridge. (Jeff Moran)
~Who’s your favorite Beckett character and why?
The one who sings. Because I love Disney characters, and Beckett creates such wonderful Disney-like characters. (Ally Johnson)
Godot, ‘cuz he’s late to stuff, like me. (Todd Brotze)
~Have you ever been in a master/servant relationship before? What were the pros and cons?
As a Jedi Master I use the force to protect the galaxy. When I was a Jedi Servant I used to make breakfast for a nice family on Alderon. (Rowan Brooks)
Not yet, but there’s always tomorrow. (Allison Page)
~Sometimes waiting in line at the bank or grocery store can feel like forever. What else feels like forever?
Waiting to win the lottery. (Ally Johnson)
Eternity. (Todd Brotze)
