First produced in 1960, ‘The Dumb Waiter’ follows the story of two gangsters Ben and Gus, as they wait for an assignment in a basement. The mood in the claustrophobic room veers between a dull silence and then animation as both men discuss their work and items in the newspaper. Interrupted only by food orders coming through a hatch in the wall – the ‘dumb waiter’ of the title, they await the message from their Boss. Showcasing Pinter’s trademark themes of underlying menace, class distinction and ideas of domination and submission, Tipperary’s SoundOut Theatre perform what is regarded as the best of Harold Pinter’s early plays.
