The Lover and The Dumb Waiter
« Reply #1 on: May 13, 2012, 02:01:14 PM »
European Arts Company present a double-bill of The Dumb Waiter and The Lover at the Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury, UK on 14 May 2012.

"In The Dumb Waiter, two hit-men are waiting in a basement room to do a job. Strange messages keep appearing via a serving hatch. Who are they from? Why are they waiting? And who is their next victim? Comedy and menace collide seamlessly in this classic Pinter one-act play from 1960."

"In 'The Lover', Richard and Sarah have been married for 10 years.  Every morning he commutes into the City to pour over balance sheets and graphs while she shows her lover the hollyhocks. Everything is not quite as it seems as fantasy and reality converge to dizzying effect."
