Enter The Den Theatre, where director Halena Kays has staged a unique and wonderful production of Samuel Beckett’s “Endgame” for The Hypocrites, and you really have to wonder just what she and her uncannily gifted cohorts are up to.

The whole place has been turned into a French cabaret, complete with pop chansons playing in the background as the audience takes its seats at candy-colored counters. Delicate hanging dioramas, clotheslines of colorful banners, heart-strewn streamers and party hats decorate the space, creating a festive atmosphere that easily conjures a sense of  joie de vivre.
