Some of the staging made it hard for all audience members to see actors' faces but not for long at any given time. Just a nit regarding this excellent production - great acting and script. Highly recommended.

The Phoenix Theatre is intimate, ideal for Pinter plays which are often set in small rooms. Richard Harder, the director, obviously admires and understands Pinter's work and the actors did a wonderful job of performing a drama which is...continued

Pinter's play is a favorite of mine. I found the actor who portrayed Jerry especially outstanding. Unfortunately, the other two main characters did not inhabit their roles quite as successfully. I found this production lacking in creativity, in...continued

Fantastic performance of this Pinter play! Really loved the show. We were very impressed with the way a small, underfunded theatre company could put on such a professional performance! Don't miss out on this!

5/9's of this show is highly involving, due to the presence of the actor playing robert, who proves that fine, true acting often comes down to doing 'nothing.' while the two other principals are indicating all of their angst -- furrowed brows,...continued

Wow - I've seen this play before but never completely understood or fully felt the impact of Pinter's play the way I did last night. Congratulations to cast and crew - truly excellent acting and directing. I also think that seeing it in this...continued

This play was very enjoyable and the location so convenient. Then actors were all very seasoned and believable and we had a wonderful time. Not a bad seat in the house! Very cozy set too.
