The Caretaker

Davies an elderly drifter is given shelter by kindly but vulnerable Aston. He quickly makes himself at home in the squalid junk-filled attic but an uneasy peace is fractured by the arrival of Mick Aston’s quick-witted streetwise younger brother. As the shadows lengthen and the three men reveal more about the past and themselves a battle of wits begins that will have irrevocable consequences for them all. A landmark of 20thC theatre The Caretaker was first performed at The Arts Theatre London in 1960. Fifty years on Pinter’s compelling study of loneliness and power games still has the capacity to amuse to shock and to fascinate.London Classic Theatre first produced The Caretaker in 2004.The tour was both a critical and commercial success and this revival is the centrepiece of their tenth anniversary year.
