By Harold Pinter
Directed by Christopher Morahan
Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse/Theatre Royal Bath

"Pryce gives a first-rate performance that gradually reveals the viper lurking underneath the vagrant."
—The Guardian (UK)

Jonathan Pryce-two-time Tony and Olivier Award winner (Miss Saigon, Hamlet) and film actor (Brazil, Pirates of the Caribbean)-leads a compelling cast in the first major revival of Harold Pinter's work since his death. This superb production by Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse/Theatre Royal Bath won glowing reviews in London and Liverpool for its penetrating new take on the play-and for Pryce's tour-de-force performance as a repellant, darkly funny, and deeply human Davies.[more] A pair of working-class brothers allows a homeless man to stay in their decrepit London flat, an act of compassion that sparks a cycle of cruelties, delusions, and shifting loyalties in a desperate struggle over territory. Pinter's first great success, this work powerfully displays his sharp intelligence, masterful and spare use of language, and uncompromising exploration of life's menace and comedy.
