The Dumb Waiter and A Slight Ache

Greenwich Theatre, Crooms Hill, Greenwich, London SE10 8ES

About the event

Both The Dumb Waiter and A Slight Ache were written by Harold Pinter in the late 1950s; two dark, unmissable comedies that explore the political machinations of those in power and those who are powerless. If you love Pinter at his influential, poetic, dramatic and provocative best, you’ll love this duo of brilliant one-act plays.

The Dumb Waiter

“We’ve proved ourselves before now, haven’t we? We’ve always done our job. What’s he doing all this for? What’s the idea? What’s he playing these games for?”

Hitmen 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…

A Slight Ache

Flora and Edward invite the match-seller into their home. The match-seller is silent – a silence which slowly but surely brings about a terrible destruction and an unexpected exchange of power.

A virtuoso mind game of perspective and reality, A Slight Ache examines a middle-aged married couple’s dreams and desires, thrown into sharp relief and shaken to the core when a mysterious man is welcomed into their private space…
