Eric Hill directs the four-person work that will run through July 24 on the Unicorn Stage.

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