heh. yeah. i've just read a few interpretations of Endgame and boy, there is a lot of meaning crammed into it. what is even more interesting is that directors can have a lot of takes on the play and accentuate completely different aspects of it. minor interpretation of the play... Spoiler: with plot details for example, 'Endgame' is a state in chess at the end of the game where there is no winner. the situation of the characters in the play resembles that a lot. they are so used to the same thing day after day and nothing changes. and after one of the characters dies and the servant leaves Hamm, it makes the old man even more miserable and unable to move. is he dead? maybe he is just left to suffer. or maybe he is unaffected. the fact that the Earth seems to have been destroyed but the death of one of them confirms that they are not in Hell yet, seems to say they are stuck in between. no winner, no loser. Endgame. and then there are like a gazillion interpretations of how it relates to people's lives. a different side of Endgame shows how people can be cruel to the ones they are the closest to, just b/c they can. then there is a question of Hamm's parents and what does their tragic love story relate to. and why is Hamm blind? and so on. ... which is why theaters show Endgame a lot. it's flexible and allows the director the freedom of creating his own interpretation, focusing on different things, while the actors crafting the play's personas also have a tough challenge.
