Bedlam Theatre




Harold Pinter


Cancelled, their rights were removed

From Harold Pinter, considered one of the most original and influential playwrights of the 20th century, Bedfest brings you two incredible performances of his one act play, The Dumb Waiter.

In a dingy, windowless basement somewhere in Birmingham, join assassins Ben and Gus as they wait for word on their next target. A dark play, full of suspense and intrigue will have you questioning the nature of the human psyche and the fearful consequences of an isolated mind. While the humour glimmers through, as the identity of the hitmen’s victim becomes clear but unspoken you will be sucked into their world of suspense, questioning at what point obedience must falter.

With an alternating cast, we can promise a different show each night, with each member of the cast bringing their own spin to the characters intense power dynamic. Come see The Dumb Waiter for a night of tension and a smattering of laughter in one of the most captivating plays of the 20th century. Hell, come see it twice.
