Synopsis


Ben and Gus have a job to do.


But as they await instructions in a derelict building, they start to receive strange messages via a dumb waiter.


Originally presented in January 1960 as part of the Hampstead Theatre Club's first season, this seminal early comedy from Nobel Prize-winning British writer Harold Pinter returns to Hampstead, sixty years on.
