“Pryce gives a first-rate performance.”
Michael Billington, The Guardian
The story of two brothers and a tramp. Davies is down and out when Aston takes him in for the night. Lost in a shoeless world, chasing papers in Sidcup, he soon fancies his chances at something more permanent. Then Mick shows up. As the odd couple becomes an odd number, who will be the odd man out?
Originally produced in 1960, The Caretaker marked Harold Pinter's arrival as the seminal playwright of his generation. He subsequently went on to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. This 2009 production marked the homecoming of celebrated actor Jonathan Pryce to the theatre where he began his career.
"The Caretaker is funny, up to a point. Beyond that point, it ceases to be funny, and it was because of that point that I wrote it.”
