Online Q&A with David Neilson and Chris Gascoyne

Put your questions to actors David Neilson and Chris Gascoyne, who star in our new production of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame.

Languishing between life and death, the chair-bound tyrant Hamm (David Neilson, best known as Coronation Street’s Roy Cropper) and his dutiful but resentful companion Clov (Chris Gascoyne, Coronation Street’s Peter Barlow) are irrevocably bound to one another.

They pass their days in a filthy, bare room, caught in a loop of futile routines. Their endless and brutal verbal jousting match is punctured only by the nostalgic reminiscing of Hamm’s parents, reduced to living in rubbish bins.

A classic of modern theatre, Beckett’s absurd and macabre play makes a grim joke of life, and finds laughter in the darkness.

During the Q&A, David and Chris will talk more about the production, their theatre and TV backgrounds and give tips to aspiring actors.

To take part, tweet your questions to @HOME_mcr using the hashtag #AskEndgame then watch the Q&A live on this page (scroll down for the video player) or our YouTube channel on Wed 2 Mar 12:00. A recording will also be available afterwards.

Endgame runs from Thu 25 Feb 2016 – Sat 12 Mar 2016. Find out more and book tickets here.
