The Dumb Waiter is the classic comedy of menace and suspense by Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter. This 2007 West End revival at the Trafalgar Studios celebrates the 50th anniversary of this rarely performed one-act play and stars Lee Evans and Jason Isaacs.

Unseen forces bear down on them in their precarious and darkly funny world. Meanwhile, increasingly bizarre orders keep arriving via a serving hatch...
