Before all the things that made you feel right at their wrongness and then subverted by your tacit agreement – there was Harold Pinter. This collection of Pinter Shorts from a very talented ensemble cast and production demonstrated just how powerful, funny, black and captivating the late playwright could be when performed with the right balance of subtltey and brute force. Combining the familiar Pinter recipe of sexuality with violence and power play, these shorts were funny and disturbing, attractive and repulsive, sinister and charismatic. Faultless and hynotising, the cast left their audience reeling as the lights rose. Fantastic.
Upstairs At 3 And 10, 3 May (until 8 May)
