The full cast has been announced for the Old Vic’s revival of Harold Pinter’s play The Caretaker.
George MacKay and Daniel Mays join Timothy Spall in The Old Vic’s forthcoming production of Pinter’s groundbreaking classic The Caretaker.
Timothy Spall leads the cast as the irascible tramp Davies, Daniel Mays plays disturbed handyman Aston with George MacKay playing Aston’s brother Mick.
Disturbed handyman Aston has invited as irascible tramp to stay with him at his brother’s jumbled London flat. At first it seems that the manipulative guest will take advantage of his vulnerable host. But when Aston’s brother Mick arrives, an enigmatic power struggle emerges between the three men that is in equal parts menacing, touching and darkly comic.
