The Dumb Waiter

This production ran Tue 18th – Wed 27th February 2014.

Somebody’s days are numbered. Locked in a windowless basement, two hit-men are awaiting their victim. Talking football, reading the paper, just passing the time till the kill… The minutes slip by, then suddenly the dumb waiter whirs into action. Pinter’s blackly comic masterpiece has inspired the works of Quentin Tarantino and Martin McDonagh. Now see the taut, atmospheric original in all its grubby glory.
