Endgame (played after the rarely staged, but considerably more satisfying Rough for Theatre II) has been a box office draw for The Old Vic this season, where Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming deliver Beckett’s quirky tales with sufficient spark and comedic zest, to demonstrate an affinity with the oft impenetrable material.

Review: SHOE LADY at Jerwood Downstairs (Royal Court Theatre)
By Stuart King Tuesday, March 10 2020, 08:28
As its title alludes, SHOE LADY is a play which revolves around a woman (Viv, played by Katherine Parkinson) who is impacted by footwear — most especially, the loss of one half of a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, it is her only pair of shoes, so the loss assumes a profound significance and the results, whilst often comic, are ultimately calamitous.
