DC Metro Theater Arts- Highly Recommended

"...When Pinter is performed with precision, with exacting attention to the text—as is the case with Scena Theatre’s razor-sharp Pinter Rep—the effect can be both unnerving and exhilarating. The tension of Pinter’s incessantly menacing language keeps us on tenterhooks, which is of course the point. One does not go to Pinter to unwind."

"...The finest of the pieces is the first, One for the Road. Christopher Henley (a fellow reviewer for DCTS, it should be noted) is quirky, funny and darkly menacing as Nicolas, a high-ranking interrogator for a particularly brutal State. With his posh accent, he murmurs deeply unsettling and peculiar thoughts to a terrified man bound to a chair. Nicolas coos and giggles; he tells jokes; he pours himself whiskey after whiskey, promising himself "one for the road". When his victim begs Nicolas to kill him, Nicolas upbraids him for despair. That would spoil Nicolas' fun."
