What is A Slight Ache / The Dumb Waiter about
Flora and Edward’s lives are about to change forever in the play, A Slight Ache, when a mysterious character enters their elegant country home.

The play explores the cost of their quest for meaning, during an argument that leads them to question the reason why their boss wants them to carry out the hit.
Performing all twenty of Harold Pinter’s one-act plays together for the first time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his death, The Pinter at the Pinter season will run for 24 weeks from September 2018.
