About EndgameA blind man in a wheelchair and the caretaker who's stuck with him, a couple who's stuck in trashbins, and a three-legged dog who's just stuck - all wondering how and why they got stuck there together. Samuel Beckett's absurd comedy Endgame explores the inexplicable, unpredictable journey of Life, and our desire not to go it alone.
About the BCS MOBILEBCS Mobile, an exciting new initiative of Baltimore Center Stage, will break down the walls of theater by bringing high quality theater to the homeless, elderly, incarcerated, and underserved. BCS Mobile's professional actors will bring both classic and contemporary works to life. The audience's unlimited imagination will be at the center of the action in the intimate comfort of their cafeteria, recreation room, gym, or lobby.
