Ben and Gus have a job to do. But as they await instructions in a derelict building, they start to receive strange messages via a dumb waiter...
Harold Pinter’s iconic masterpiece originally premiered as part of Hampstead Theatre’s first ever season in 1960. Sixty years on, this brilliant comedy makes a highly anticipated return home for its 60th Anniversary Production.
Pinter wrote twenty-nine plays including The Birthday Party, The Caretaker, The Homecoming and Betrayal. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005.
Alice Hamilton’s directing credits include the Olivier-nominated Every Day I Make Greatness Happen and Paradise (both Hampstead Downstairs), The Weatherman (Park Theatre) and While We’re Here (Bush).
