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, Davis is wrong-footed and outmanoeuvred. 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.
