John Wood and Don Bridges star in The Dumb Waiter
at Chapel Off Chapel, which is running for one week only, beginning with the preview show on Tuesday 4th September through to Sunday 9th September.
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.
