Double bill of Pinter dramas

Everything is not quite as it seems as fantasy and reality converge to dizzying effect in a Harold Pinter double-bill coming to Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on May 23-24.

The Dumb Waiter and The Lover are two witty dramas by the Nobel prize-winner, offering a rare treat for any theatre-lover.

In The Dumb Waiter, two hitmen are waiting in a basement room to do a job. Strange messages keep appearing via a serving hatch. Who sent them? Why are they waiting? And who is their next victim?

Comedy and menace seamlessly collide in this classic one-act 1960s play.

In The Lover, Richard and Sarah have been married for ten years. Every morning he commutes into the City to pore over balance sheets and graphs, while she shows her lover the hollyhocks.
