An absurdist tragicomedy originally published in 1960, The Caretaker was Nobel Prize-winning writer Harold Pinter's first major success. Frequently likened to Samuel Beckett's classic Waiting for Godot, The Caretaker revolves around the mentally challenged Aston, the fast-talking tramp he invites to stay with him, and Mick (Aston's younger brother, housemate and caretaker). The Caretaker stands as a prime example of Pinter's masterful ability to mix darkness, humor and humanity. For this Imago Theatre production, Jerry Mouawad directs Allen Nause in the lead role.

I thought the show was great. Unfortunately, I had 3 small children sitting in front of me that would not sit still. I spent the entire first half of the show being distracted by these kids. At intermission I spoke to an usher and they seated my group on the opposite side of the theater. This definitely made the second half of the show much more enjoyable for me.

The only thing little Ralphie Parker hopes to find under the tree is a Daisy Brand Red Ryder BB rifle. He doesn’t simply want it — he’s consumed with an aching desire for it. Looming in the way, however, are alleyway bullies, major awards, freezing flagpoles, unsympathetic authorities and a certain horrifying Macy’s Santa. Based upon the classic motion picture, this play is a holiday treat everyone can enjoy — that is, until someone shoots their eye out.
This show is recommended for those ages 6 and older and runs two hours, with one 15-minute intermission.
