  Synopsis: In the basement of a long-abandoned restaurant, two hired killers nervously await their next assignment. Barred from daylight and living public contact by the nature of their work, they expend their waiting time in bickering. When the ancient dumbwaiter comes to life, the suspense becomes almost unbearable. Part Two of this evening of Pinter is Celebration, where two brothers celebrate a wedding anniversary with their wives, and a banker is dining with his wife. The dialogue begins as an ordinary meal for the diners, ultimately developing into a complex weaving of more sinister themes. The play ends with a mysterious (and 'incomplete') speech from the waiter, which hints at a possible way to escape the pain of everyday life. Presented for the first time at BCT
