Y12 ATAR Drama Performance

Y12 ATAR Drama Performance

On Wednesday 30 March the Year 12 Drama ATAR students will be performing excerpts from the Absurdist play “Endgame” by Samuel Beckett.

The performance is being held in the Marist Auditorium, commencing at 6.30pm (it will go for approximately 45 minutes). The students have not only directed themselves, but they have also created the set, costumes, lighting and sound designs for this show so it has been a true testament to how wonderful they are and how well they work together as an ensemble.

What’s it about you ask?....
The setting for Endgame is in a post-apocalyptic world on a bare, partially underground room, serving as shelter for the four characters: Hamm the master, Clov his servant, and Hamm's father and mother, Nagg and Nell (who live in garbage cans). Hamm is in a wheelchair and makes Clov move him around the room, fetch objects, and look out the window for signs of life. Outside all seems dead and nothing happens. Inside, the characters pass the time mortifying each other and toying with fears and illusions of a possible change, all along sensing the inevitability of their end.
