The Dumb Waiter

Harold Pinter

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Gus and Ben are laying low, gun in hand, for their next hit. But who will it be? When will they come?

From their basement room, the two hitmen await instructions, but get caught up in the semantics of lighting a kettle and whether Aston Villa are playing home or away this week.

The only contact they have with the outside world comes through a mysterious dumb waiter.

Come and wait with them for a gripping and uncomfortable hour in the Corpus Playroom.

This production is recommended for ages 14 and over.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
