The Dumb Waiter & Betrayal

23rd - 28th March 2015

Progressive Players SHOWING TONIGHTplayhouse creatures

Two one act plays written by one of Britain's best known playwrights.


In The Dumb Waiter, two hit men co-exist in an atmosphere of menace and mystery in the basement below a disused restaraunt, wrestling with a dumb waiter which demands dishes they cannot supply. Just who is operating it?


Betrayal is a brooding mixture of manners, self-deception and dishonesty, set amidst a seven-year long affair between a woman and her husband's best friend.
