The Dumb Waiter

The Dumb Waiter is a two-man show set in Birmingham, England during the time period before modern technology took over the world. The two characters, Ben (played by Gold Logie winning actor John Wood) and Gus (played by well-known character actor Don Bridges), are waiting in a tiny hotel room for further instructions on their next job. The two men, it turns out are hit men and their required information will be provided to them via the dumb waiter in their room, hence the name of the play.

Both John Wood and Don Bridges have held long careers in Australia and have brought their talent and experience to their roles in The Dumb Waiter. This play has the suspense of keeping the audience wondering what will happen next in regard to the instructions they anxiously await with touches of dry humour thrown in throughout.

The Set of The Dumb Waiter

Directed by Greenroom Nominee Paul Watson, The Dumb Waiter is a little gem of a play, set back in time to pay homage to the fact that the play was written in 1954.

This particular play of 2005 Nobel Award winner Harold Pinter, has been regarded as one of his best works from a career spanning his 50-year career.
