Known play Learn more about this play
Harold Pinter's most beguiling and atmospheric play.

A chance meeting between two elderly writers in a North London pub leads to an alcohol-fuelled night of reminiscences and verbal sparring Hirst, a wealthy alcoholic recluse, invites spooner, a down-at-heel poet, to his Hampstead townhouse for a nightcap. As the shadows lengthen and the whisky flows, their stories become more elaborae and improbable, until the arrival of two younger men forces events to take an unepected turn.

Originally performed in 1975 the legendary play interweaves truth, language and memory to create a world of dark comedy and subtle power games.
