"Nothing is funnier than unhappiness"
The world is coming to an end. Beckett's 1957 dark comedy finds the blind, bullying Hamm (Michael Gambon) and his shambling, hapless servant Clov (Lee Evans) trapped in a strange room. Along with Nagg (Geoffrey Hutchings) and Nell - Hamm's parents who live in a pair of dustbins - the 'Servant' and his 'Master' pass the time toying with the hopelessness of their situation all along sensing the inevitability of their end.
