The Caretaker description

Harold Pinter's menacing and darkly comic play The Caretaker arrives in a brand new production at the Old Vic Theatre as part of incoming Artistic Director Matthew Warchus' inaugural season. Directed by Warchus himself, the production will star the much loved British actor Timothy Spall in the role of Davies, alongside George MacKay and Daniel Mays.

First seen in the West End in 1960, the play quickly became one of Pinter's most popular works and was the first to be a commercial success. The original production transferred to Broadway, and was adapted into a film adaptation in 1964.

Often described as a 'tragi-comedy', Pinter blends realism with the Theatre of the Absurd, creating a highly unique and stylised new type of theatre. Deeply unsettling, this psychological study of two brothers and a tramp deals with themes of allegiance, innocence, and corruption. Don't miss one of the 20th Century's most remarkable dramas in a brand new production at one of London's most exciting and innovative venues.
