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.

Had never been to the Magenta Theater before. It was "cozy." Seats relatively comfortable. The usher couldn't figure out the seating chart, so sent people to the wrong seats. Some people had paid a bit more for center seats, but the section wasn't full, so the ushers let people who had not paid the upgrade sit in the front row, center.
Cast was good, though their accents failed a bit in the last scene. It was a fun play, and there were some moving moments, as well as lots of hilarity. Set was good, costumes appropriate. Kind of a "folksy, small-town" experience compared to Portland's overpriced venues. Overall, a nice community theatre experience. I'll try some of their other offerings.
