Neil Simon’s hilarious farce puts eight party guests through an evening of utter chaos as they scramble to save themselves from scandal. It is the tenth wedding anniversary of Charley and Vivian Brooks, but when their friends turn up at their house expecting a party, they find the hostess missing and the host, a prominent government official, lying upstairs with a bullet wound in his ear lobe. The guests try to conceal from each new arrival (and the police) – what has happened, creating an ever more precarious tower of lies.

‘Make sense who may, for make sense we must...’
‘Endgame’ was Samuel Beckett's first full-length play, after his famous ‘Waiting for Godot’. The many themes present in the play revolve around a central one: how we cope with ‘being in time’. The four characters hang in an enclosed ‘space-time present reality’, trapped between a ‘future’ that never comes and a ‘past’ that never happened. They invent stories about the past in order to add a sense of direction to their existence, to engage the ‘process of being’, which would potentially lead to a future and ‘a departure’ from life – an end.

A story of love, adultery and lust. A waltz through the love stories of three couples who start off in the wrong relationship and over the course of a country weekend eventually find the right one. Sondheim describes it as ‘whipped cream with knives’. A wonderfully score (Send in the Clowns) and sharp witty lyrics and dialogue.
