Gemma Whelan & John Heffernan star in A Slight Ache as part of the Pinter season

The Dumb Waiter sees two hit-men sit in a basement room awaiting confirmation of their next target. Gus, the younger of the two, is asking many questions to learn from Ben, the senior member of the team, as their evening takes unexpected turns.

A Slight Ache is about a couple, Edward and Flora, who invite a matchseller into their home. The matchseller may be silent, but what begins as a pleasant midsummer’s day slowly descends into total chaos.

The Dumb Waiter and A Slight Ache will run at the Harold Pinter Theatre between 31st January 2019 and 23rd February, with an official opening night on 6th February 2019. Tickets are on sale now.
