William Petersen, of "CSI" fame, stars in the Steppenwolf Theatre Company's current revival of the Samuel Beckett classic Endgame.
Directed by Frank Galati, performances at the famed Chicago venue are scheduled through June 6 in the Downstairs Theatre. The cast features Ian Barford, Francis Guinan, Martha Lavey and William Petersen. Endgame, according to press notes, "follows Hamm, a blind man unable to stand, and his servant Clov, who is unable to sit, as they pass their days in a tiny house by the sea—if the sea still exists. Pestered by Hamm’s parents, they move through their daily rituals, awaiting the end of everything. A powerful all-ensemble cast anchors this profound exploration of the stories we construct to make sense of our lives."
