READ ME. i felt it nessasary to put that, first off, because unfortunately it doesnt seem that many people actually go through and check out most of the blogs, maybe due to lack of time or whatever, but this play is awsome and i hope it gets someones attention and interest. "Endgame" is a play by Samuel Beckett and it is nothing but your typical play. it is filled with dark humor, and really focuses on very philisophical questions in a time where the essential meaning of life was being questioned by many artist. in a post-world war world samuel beckett's play questions the basic meaning of human existence. it is anything but a theatre goers play, it is a play filled with puzzling, humorous and deep questions, it is a poet's play. there are no scenes and it is basically four people living in a dark room questioning meanings and ocasionally lookiing out the window at a bleak cold earth. "Your on earth, there is no cure for that" echoes through the play. "god does not exist" leaves its reminents through the play, giving it a feel of existentiallism. it is an incredible play, samuel beckett is incredible, and it is well worth the trip and the price (20$). it is in a small dark room, and there are only about 30 seats, so you will get a good spot and you can talk to the cast afterword which only consists of 4 people and the director. it is an incredibly well acted play, very funny, and extremely well done. GO SEE IT! TODAY. if you want to see a really good play that isnt fruity, or cheesy, there is no singing or dancing or anything like that. it is a really cool, dark, modern play. IT'S THE SHIT. GO SEE THIS SHIT NOW..

Though it's not technically at Central, this could count as a "literary event" for the wiki, if you like. Plus, Beckett would love to know you think he's the "shit"!

I went to see "Endgame" today, and I have to say I was a bit dissapointed. I think I would've liked it more if I had taken the time to do some research on what it was about beforehand, but going in blind I was expecting more action, more excitement and a clearer presentation of ideas. Trying to decipher Beckett's intended themes from the dialogue of the disturbed characters was a challenge. I have to give you credit for finding philosophic meaning in the play. I'd probably have to read it to get a real grip on it.
