The Dumb Waiter

BY HAROLD PINTER

DIRECTED BY ALICE HAMILTON

“We’ve proved ourselves before now, haven’t we? We’ve always done our job. What’s he doing all this for? What’s the idea? What’s he playing these games for?”

Ben and Gus have a job to do. But as they await instructions in a derelict building, they start to receive strange messages via a dumb waiter. 

Originally presented in January 1960 as part of the Hampstead Theatre Club’s first season, this seminal early comedy from Nobel Prize-winning British writer Harold Pinter returns to Hampstead, sixty years on.

Alice Hamilton’s directing credits include the Olivier-nominated Every Day I Make Greatness Happen and Paradise (both Hampstead Downstairs), The Weatherman (Park Theatre) and While We’re Here (Bush).

The Dumb Waiter opens Hampstead Theatre’s Classics Season, celebrating 60 years of original theatre with the restaging of four major plays from our archive.

‘The most influential, provocative and poetic dramatist of his generation’

The Guardian on Harold Pinter

‘The productions… are unfaltering, the playing impeccable. If the Hampstead Theatre Club keeps to this standard, it not only deserves success it will command it’

Harold Hobson, Sunday Times, on the original Hampstead Theatre Club productions of The Dumb Waiter and The Room
