Hothouse by Harold Pinter
Set in a government-run mental institution, THE HOTHOUSE revolves around a sinister murder plot hatched against a backdrop of corruption, sexual favors, and hopeless bureaucratic ineptitude. It's a dark comedy, but beneath the surface there are frightening concerns: people referred to as numbers who are forgotten as easily as figures on a balance sheet.
"A blistering funny playHothouse is wild, impudent, fiercely funny."
