European Arts Company, who recently brought us the delightful 'Chekhov's Shorts', returns with a very entertaining double-bill of Harold Pinter's classic short, black-comedies.
In 'The Dumb Waiter', two hit-men are waiting in a basement room to do a job. Strange messages keep appearing via a serving hatch. Who are they from? Why are they waiting? And who is their next victim? Comedy and menace collide seamlessly in this classic Pinter one-act play from 1960. In 'The Lover', Richard and Sarah have been married for 10 years.
Every morning he commutes into the City to pour over balance sheets and graphs while she shows her lover the hollyhocks. Everything is not quite as it seems as fantasy and reality converge to dizzying effect. These witty dramas by the Nobel prize-winner still pack the same punch as when first written. Thrillingly powerful with an air of mystery, they will keep you on the edge of your seat. A rare and welcome treat for any theatre lover!
