Corkins and Dougherty to Join Harrison and Chandler for Endgame at Berkshire Fest

News   Corkins and Dougherty to Join Harrison and Chandler for Endgame at Berkshire Fest
 
Mark Corkins and Tanya Dougherty will face the world's end in the Berkshire Theatre Festival production of Samuel Beckett's Endgame in July.

Eric Hill will direct the four-person work that features the previously announced Randy Harrison and David Chandler. Endgame will run July 10-24.

In a casting twist, Harrison, known for his role on "Queer As Folk" and in Broadway's Wicked, will inhabit the role of the elderly Nagg, opposite Tanya Dougherty as his wife Nell. The two brittle characters appear from trash bins. Veteran actor Corkins will play the imperious Hamm, with Chandler as his manservant Clov.

Designing Endgame are Gary M. English (scenic design), Charles Schoonmaker (costume design) and Dan Kotlowitz (lighting design).

According to BTF: "Endgame presents an absurdist’s vision of a future where time and reason are little more than suggestions, with characters as memorable as they are miserable. And wrapped up in the hilarity, in true Beckett style, is a brutally honest commentary on life and death. Never has 'The End' seemed so bizarre - or so incredibly funny."
