Old Vic Theatre
Harold Pinter’s groundbreaking classic comes to The Old Vic in a new production directed by Matthew Warchus.
Disturbed handyman Aston has invited an irascible tramp to stay with him at his brother’s jumbled London flat. At first it seems that the manipulative guest will take advantage of his vulnerable host. But when Aston’s brother Mick arrives, an enigmatic power struggle emerges between the three men that is in equal parts menacing, touching and darkly comic.
