Endgame, By Samuel Beckett

Synopsis
A performance of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Endgame’, a play in which nothing happens, once - unlike Beckett’s first play ‘Waiting for Godot’ in which nothing happens twice. It is not a play about chess, in any explicit sense, but it does feature a lovable if curmudgeonly old man in a dustbin. Features Norman Beaton (Hamm), Stephen Rea (Clov), Charlie Drake (Nagg) and Kate Binchy (Nell). This first full-length British television performance of the play was premiered in 1991.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
