Samuel Beckett’s Endgame is intriguing, complex, questioning and rarely performed for public audiences. Following the success of their joint venture Coalition in 2012, Andrew once again worked alongside director Will Felton under the umbrella of Commensal Theatre, securing finance from University sources and production company Fools & Kings.
Endgame was the team’s second show in the fifty-seat Burton Taylor Studio, but with more performance dates and a second production sharing the venue, the project was difficult to execute. Nevertheless, through a core targeted marketing strategy focused heavily on the internet and video trailers, the week-long run sold out before lights went up on opening night. Financially and logistically, Endgame was a huge success, and from the outstanding feedback received on the creative front, the team look set for future success on their next show in the spring.
