"It's funny till it's not." -Harold Pinter. First staged in London, 1960, Pinter's first success still has the power to surprise, entertain, and unsettle audiences. Soon after a pair of working-class brothers allow a boastful vagabond to temporarily stay in their decrepit London house, they've each separately offered the man a job as caretaker. Trapped in their own individual worlds of dreams and delusions-they're soon at odds as kindness and loyalties give way to cruelties unleashed and lies exposed in this bitingly funny psychological exploration of life's menace and absurdity.
