SUMMARY

In a rundown boarding house somewhere on the south coast of England sits Stanley Webber. Behind him stand the two large frames of Goldberg and McCann, unwelcome visitors to this former piano player. It’s his birthday. It begins with the steady beat of a drum and ends with the irregular grunts of Webber, quivering, animal-like, on the wooden floor. He should never have left the organisation. Dawn breaks with the screech of a car engine and Goldberg’s soothing words.

Absurd, terrifying and uncomfortably funny, this is arguably Harold Pinter’s greatest play. It is one of the rawest expressions of control, secrecy and repression in twentieth century drama. As the winter nights draw in, Dib Dab Productions bring you this dark and claustrophobic portrait of power and one man’s subjugation.
