During a curtain speech before one of the recent, final performances of Port Twilight, Katherine Owens, artistic director of the Undermain Theatre, announced that the the so-far-unnamed final production of the Undermain’s 26th season would be Samuel Beckett’s classic, Endgame — to be directed by Stan Wojewodski, Jr., the former artistic director of the Yale Repertory Theatre and current SMU professor of directing.
The theater company has a history of doing rare but terrific stagings of Beckett’s works. But for those of us with long memories of non-Undermain Beckett, this may well mean that Bruce DuBose will get another crack at the great drama. He portrayed Hamm almost 20 years ago at the then-Addison Centre Theatre, directed by Kelly Cotten.
The Undermain’s production opens April 10.
