SoundOut Theatre Perform Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter

The Dumb Waiter is a one-act play by Harold Pinter written in 1957. “Small but perfectly formed, The Dumb Waiter might be considered the best of Harold Pinter’s early plays.

In The Dumb Waiter, two gangsters are waiting in a basement hideout for their next victim to walk in unaware. Ben reads the paper. Gus fidgets and jabbers. An envelope slides under the door, then the dumb waiter, a remnant from the old café above, whirs into life, delivering orders — braised steak and chips, char sui and beansprouts — that can’t be met. If it seems like a cruel cosmic joke, you have to ask who’s playing the joker. Ben and Gus panic because they know what they themselves are capable of. They can be ambushed just as easily as they can ambush others.
