featuring:


THE DUMB WAITER
by Harold Pinter


One of Off-Broadway's most successful entries (where it was presented with The Collection under the overall title of The Pinter Plays) this mysterious and moody study in suspense concerns two men who wait apprehensively in a grubby, windowless basement room for word of their next job. "THE DUMB WAITER is a suspense play, mysterious almost mystic." -NY World-Telegram & Sun. " distinguished gift for sheer, old-fashioned theatrical effectiveness, including the use of melodramatic suspense and the hint of sinister forces lying in ambush." -NY Post.

THE STORY: As the New York World-Telegram & Sun describes: "In the basement of a long-abandoned restaurant, two men nervously await their next job. Barred from daylight and living public contact by the nature of their work, they expend their waiting time in bickering. So eerie is the situation that everything becomes comic, or grotesque, or both. Ben re-reading a newspaper and exclaiming in disbelief over the news items, Gus fussing with an offstage stove and offstage plumbing. Ben bludgeoning Gus into silence if he as much as mentions their work. Gus worrying that someone had slept in his bed. So then the ancient dumbwaiter comes to life, the suspense becomes almost unbearable that expertly has Pinter put the nerves of his characters and audience on edge."

"Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc."

As a special bonus, immediately following, we will be presenting the World Premiere of a one-act, INTERROGATION, written by Seattle Writer Beau Prichard.
