This elegant, witty play is Pinter brilliantly at his most compelling: the dialogue crackles with scalpel like precision: three people in a remote cottage, redolent with sensuality, remember each other’s shared past, but the same past may look very different through the eyes of the other… Things we remember may never have happened, but as we remember them they take place; truth is disturbingly elusive. With slight of hand, memory the weapon, this play quietly takes us into dangerous country where one person’s possession of another is the name of the game. The grip and fascination of the shifting relationships of the three characters never lets up.
Performed in the main house.
