Synopsis: THE CARETAKER

3 Dec 2019

In Harold Pinter’s extraordinarily mischievous comedy, Aston asks down-and-out Davis to be a live-in caretaker. Davis leaps at the chance to change his fortunes, but the trouble is he doesn’t know what a caretaker should do, especially in a room filled with junk. When Aston’s manipulative brother Mike shows up, Davies is wrong-footed and outmanoeuvred. Why does Aston collect all this stuff? Will Davies ever get a pair of decent shoes? And who will fix the drip in the ceiling?

In this famous contemporary classic, Harold Pinter cranks up the tension, piles on the laughs and teases out the emotional foibles in three lonely men. Director Iain Sinclair (A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE) teams up once more with Darren Gilshenan (WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?) for this explosive, compelling theatrical event.
