Harold Pinter’s modern classic.

The Theatre on the Square

“Five stars.” – Phemelo Motene

“If you want to see theatre at its very best, with direction that explores the subtext and lifts out the loaded pauses between scenes and sentences to devastating effect, as well as the way emotions and trust are betrayed, this one will satisfy and impress.” – Leon van Nierop

“All three actors are excellent – Graeme brittle and (of the three) relatively tentative; Fairfoot superficially brash but grounded in uncertainty; and Coleman cynically edgy and unpredictable.” – Bruce Dennill

“IT’S THE SILENCES and gaps between words and the construction of the unspoken beat in this intriguing Pinter work, that lends it its potency and dramatic verve, but it is this potency mixed with extremely classy performances, an understated set and an unequivocal elegance that gives it the edge that keeps you focused.” – Robyn Sassen

“Sparse sets, uncomfortable silences and terse conversation with a wonderful sense of comic timing – a Pinter hallmark – delight the audience.” – Sharmini Brookes

“Pinter’s acute intelligence and deep understanding of matters of the heart flow through the crisply delivered dialogue.” – Peter Feldman
