In the living room of a pleasant house in a university town outside London, Devlin, threatened by his wife Rebecca’s recollections of an abusive ex-lover, questions her endlessly in his need for a single truth. In her seamless blending of what she knows of violence with the wider violence of the world, Rebecca reveals an eerie communion with the dead victims of unnamed political barbarities.
Harold Pinter CH CBE (1930-2008) was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. “In his plays he uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into closed rooms”. In “Ashes to Ashes” Pinter explores the themes of truth, memory and violence, taking the audience on a tightrope of emotion in an intense period of real time. ‘…extraordinarily powerful…elusive, mesmeric, disturbing’ (The Guardian).
The production features Margo Gunn (New Tricks BBCTV) and Chris Parke (Macbeth Brighton Little Theatre) directed by Neil Brown (A Woman’s Life and Love ‘world class’ Brighton Festival Press).
Two performances on the night 7pm AND 9pm on Friday 12th April 2013 at the Under Ground Theatre. Bar and coffee bar from 6.30 pm. Tickets: £10 (members £9)
