Beckett in The Barn - Endgame

This fall Hudson Players Club presents Beckett in the Barn with Samuel Beckett’s Endgame.

Hudson Players Club is teaming up with local merchants and artisans, the 2 Barn Owls, to mount Beckett’s classic dystopian tale in the 2 Barn Owls Barn Gallery and Boutique at 420 Main Road in Hudson.

Performances will be from Saturday, October 14 to Wednesday, October 18.

The one-act play follows four characters, Hamm, Clov, Nagg and Nell, as they desperately (and often comically) attempt to hold on to daily rituals in a futile attempt to create some sense of order within the repetitive nothingness of their existence.

With only 50 seats available per show, this production will give theatre-goers a truly intimate experience. It’s a great opportunity to see local Hudson talent taking on one of theatre’s most challenging and visceral plays.

Tickets available below or at the 2 Barn Owls in Hudson. Limited tickets available..

Our Production Team

Director – Chris Gobeil

Along with being Treasurer of the Hudson Players Club for several years now, Chris has worn many hats:  he played Don Pedro in Hudson Players Club’s first Shakespeare by the Lake presentation of Much Ado About Nothing in 2013; he produced the play As You Like It for Shakespeare by the Lake the following year; and in 2016 he wrote and directed For the Love of Shakespeare, also for Shakespeare by the Lake.  He also directed a live production of the radio play All That Fall by Samuel Beckett for the club in 2016.

“I would like to thank the Hudson Players Club for the marvellous opportunities that they have given me over the years. Being able to direct Endgame in particular has been a dream of mine for a very long time. With our wonderful, talented cast, and all the incredible dedicated folks backstage, I know we will be able to bring this play to life and do justice to the genius that Beckett brought to his playwriting.”
