ME TO PLAY follows two veteran actors as they pursue a one-night-only performance  of a lifetime. Dan Moran and Chris Jones, who first met while performing in A MONTH  IN THE COUNTRY with Helen Mirren in 1995, are united by a mission to present  Samuel Beckett's absurdist tragicomedy Endgame if it's the last performance they do.  Coincidentally diagnosed with Parkinson's at the same time, the actors find purpose in  illuminating Beckett's prose (which Beckett wrote after his mother died of Parkinson’s),

with Moran taking on the role of the blind, paralyzed, and malicious Hamm, and Jones  his put-upon servant, Clov. Under the collaborative direction of Joe Grifasi and  producer Ruth Kreska, Moran and Jones bring their impeccable comic timing, decades  of experience, and the driving need to infuse Beckett's blithely nihilistic words with an  authentic emotional and physical turmoil to the Off-Broadway stage. Running Time: 71 minutes
