The Lover & The Dumb Waiter, by Harold Pinter

Comedy/Drama, Drama, Mystery/Thriller

Thu/Fri/Sat, March 14–17, 21–23 & 28–30. in Sylvia Center’s Lucas Hicks Theater. Presented in conjunction with Stone Town Theatre Works. Thrillingly sexy with an air of mystery, The Lover will keep you on the edge of your seat as the worlds of fantasy and reality collide. With The Dumb Waiter's great humor, absurdity and wit, the “comedy of menace” twists to an unexpected conclusion. A rare and welcome treat for the theater-lover. Two of the early one-acts by Harold Pinter (The Birthday Party), one of the most influential British playwrights of the twentieth century, that helped to broaden the course of theatrical expression. These two taut comedic dramas still pack the same punch as when first written, and provide a perfect close to the DYO Festival, a five-weekend celebration of two-actor plays at Sylvia Center.
