One of Harold Pinter's most recognized and acclaimed plays, "The Dumb Waiter" is a comedy of menace.
Sunscreen Theatricals will present one of Harold Pinter’s most acclaimed and well-known plays, “The Dumb Waiter” on Friday, October 4th. The play is an absurd, tragicomic one-act show about two hitmen hiding out in the basement of a derelict building, waiting for the delivery of their next victim.
Miles Davis once famously said “it’s not the notes you play, it’s the notes you don’t play.” Much like Davis’ interpretation of jazz, Pinter’s written words are not always what’s driving the narrative in his famous play – it’s often the unspoken dialogue between the actors that delivers the most profound message, pushing them to explore physical and emotional interactions beyond language.
The Dumb Waiter features actors Ben Crowley (Spike Lee’s “Sucker Free City”, “The Hills Have Eyes 2”, “Ratched” w/Cynthia Nixon) and London Kim (Robert Rodriguez’s “Matador”, Clint Eastwood’s “Letters From iwo Jima” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and is directed by Julie Nunis (Assistant to Broadway Producer, Joan Stein on Steve Martin’s “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” NY, SF and Chicago prods and documentary film director of “Jazz v. Punk”).
