Excerpts from Reviews for Endgame by Samuel Beckett
Presented by the Rude Mechanicals
Directed by Stephan Golux

The cast assembled for the Rude Mechanicals production, under the clear, intelligent, unfussy direction of Stephen Golux, serves the text admirably.

       in Beckett's 'Endgame'

In the Rude Mechanicals' production, an old-fashioned pull-up curtain unveils David Korns' beautifully conceived post-apocalyptic living room of muted purples and greens. For a fledgling theater company, the Rude Mechanicals sure deliver top-shelf production values ... In "Endgame," Beckett sets out to prove that "nothing is funnier than unhappiness." Although this staging rarely elicits laugh-out-loud hilarity, Beckett's poetry does eventually wash over the audience, and, occasionally, a short phrase will crystallize on the lips of one of the well-trained players to create that breathless moment of "Aha!"
    - Eric Stoneberg
The Rude Mechanicals ... do an admirable job of bringing this forty-three year old play to life. And giving it life-that is, animating it-is not an easy task ... Endgame gives us a failing universe of static, motionless energy. It is the play's great theatrical challenge to provide motion where there is none, animation where there is only stasis. Director Stephan Golux and his actors demonstrate a workmanlike, precise approach to the text; each pause seems respected, each routine, comic and domestic, fulfilled to the letter.
