The Dumb Waiter by Harold Pinter – The Print Room
In an airless, windowless basement, two hit men await their orders.
The last job has got Gus thinking while Ben just wants a cup of tea.
But their usual routine is disturbed and events start looking ominous when the unexpected and increasingly perplexing messages start arriving through the ‘dumb waiter’. It is soon clear that all is not what it seems…
Marking the London directorial debut of Jamie Glover, this is a classic comedy of menace and suspense by Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter.
