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.

Very creative ideas that pulled this play off right down to the stage hands. The main character was wonderful and she will not be easily forgotten. I would pay more to see her act and watch her facial expressions again. A notable problem was that the audience was filled with friends of the actors, and in their support, inappropriately laughed alot. They laughed quite loudly when others were not...and I noticed that many of us found that annoying and disruptive.
Kicking off Portland Actors Conservatory’s (PAC) 27th Anniversary season of plays, Reckless, the 1983 dark comedy by Craig Lucas, will be directed by PAC executive director and faculty member Philip Cuomo (The Comedy of Errors, Drammy Award winning director).
When Rachel's husband takes a hit out on her life, her narrow Christmas escape gifts her with a peculiar, but loving, new family. Unfortunately, the holidays come around again with a vengeance.
