Despite having studied English Literature at university, I have never read a Pinter play. Nor have I, before last night at least, seen one performed: shameful I know, but there it is. So it was to my great delight and educational advancement that I was invited to attend The Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter’s new production of Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter.
Theatre Alibi are performing Graham Greene’s The Ministry of Fear is at the Exeter Northcott. Have a listen to this atmospheric live score for double bass and sax and a stunning set and lighting inspired by the bombed-out wreckage of London during the Blitz.
The Exeter Northcott is welcoming back many old friends for its spring 2010 season, tickets for which are on sale now.
