Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bringing back memories Whilst training as a teacher with my main subject being drama, I first became acquainted with Pinter as a play-write. I knew "The Dumb Waiter" than, but didn't know "A Slight Ache". I enjoyed both plays, with two talented actors in each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Dumb Waiter Harold Pinter Theatre I went to Harold Pinter's the a slight ache and the dumb waiter at the harold pinter theatre on saturday night, the first play a slight ache is brilliant but very unsettling and very funny, the two lead actors are brilliant. The second half is the dumb waiter which stars Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman who are suberb and really funny as two hitman in a basement waiting for their next job. Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman work brilliantly together and had me in stiches, I would highly reccomend you see these two plays suberbly directed by Jamie Llloyd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good Pinter interpretation A Slight Ache was typically hard to interpret. The acting was good but managing a play written for radio was hard to swallow. In any event the farce of the 1950’s marriage was the centre of the focus. The Dumb Waiter was. Funny in places after the slowish start. It must be one of Pinter’s more digestible plays ant the two hired guns were brilliantly acted. Really commendable and amusing acting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Game of Two Halves Being brutally honest A Slight Ache began strongly and then lost me. Can’t fault the performances, but I would never have worked out the subtext if I had stayed in my seat all week. Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman were superb in The Dumb Waiter (although again the purpose of the said dumb waiter is still really hidden from me) with an amazing back and forth that absorbed and delighted. My first taste of Pinter and I’m probably on the fence. Back in a month or so for Betrayal. A bit unsure to be honest, but we’ll see.
