About the Plays: One of Off-Broadway's most successful entries, "The Dumb Waiter" is a mysterious and moody study in suspense concerning two professional killers who wait apprehensively in a grubby, windowless basement room for word of their next macabre assignment.
In "A Slight Ache" Flora and Edward sit at the breakfast table chatting of flowers and wasps and of the slight ache Edward feels in his eyes. Their conversation, which seems so simple and is yet so strangely revealing, then shifts to the mysterious match seller who has been standing by their back gate for many weeks. Somehow his presence intimidates them, as they discuss who the match seller may really be, and they resolve to call him in for a direct confrontation.
Press: "The Dumb Waiter is a suspense play, mysterious almost mystic." -NY World-Telegram & Sun.
"...a 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.
"A Slight Ache is filled with a subtle sense of mood and elusive truths. ...the most unusual play off Broadway." -NY World-Telegram & Sun.
"...demonstrates again what an unusual and exciting dramatist Harold Pinter is." -NY Post.
