HAROLD Pinter’s The Caretaker comes to The Theatre in Chipping Norton next month.

Davies, an elderly drifter, is given shelter by the kindly but vulnerable Aston. He quickly makes himself at home in the squalid, junk-filled flat, but an uneasy peace is fractured by the arrival of Mick, Aston’s streetwise younger brother.

As the shadows lengthen, a battle of wits begins that will have irrevocable consequences for them all. Fifty years after its premier, Pinter’s landmark study of loneliness and power games still has the capacity to amuse, to shock and to fascinate.

From London Classic Theatre, the company behind the recent sell-out production of Humble Boy, The Caretaker plays on Friday and Saturday, May 7-8 from 7.45pm.

Tickets cost £12, £10 concessions, from 01608 642350.
