A SLIGHT ACHE
by Harold Pinter
This classic early “comedy of menace” by Harold Pinter was originally produced as a radio play but adapted for the stage following the successes of The Dumb Waiter and The Caretaker. Although it is described as a comedy it is far more than that as it moves into darker territory leaving the audience with as many questions as answers.
For those familiar with Camp Theatre and Sterts Theatre touring productions the speaking roles are played by Glenda Ellis and Steve Jefferies.
A respectable couple’s rural idyll is shattered by the arrival of an outsider. Why does Edward obsess with wasps and Flora want to show her clematis to a stranger?
All is revealed in an hour (including the pauses!)
