This engaging summary presents an analysis of Endgame by Samuel Beckett, an avant-garde play in which four characters are alone in a shelter, in the middle of a post-apocalyptical world, and impatiently await the end. Their bodies undergo a slow degradation and their boredom can only end with their deaths. Beckett wrote the play in French and then translated it into English himself, a rare feat for any playwright. His tragicomic perspective on life and black humour made him a popular writer during his lifetime, and audiences continue to enjoy his plays to this day.
