The Dumb Waiter at the Edinburgh festival

The Spartan Ensemble with Ian Watt and Paul Comrie present Pinter's The Dumb Waiter at the New Town Theatre, Edimburgh.

"A fresh, site-specific twist to this well-known piece. Performed in the basement kitchen at lunchtimes and early evenings. The setting adds an eerie and threatening edge to Pinter's disturbing and claustrophobic play punctured by absurdist, comedic moments and surreal echoes of Beckett's Waiting for Godot. Ben and Gus await their final orders from their absentee master. One classic play, two prime quality actors, one hit recipe. Will it boil over? Ian Watt and Paul Comrie of Spartan serve piping hot Pinter twice daily. Directed by Mark Westbrook."
