Michaelmas Week 7
Three comic sketches and one short play; all by the late, great Harold Pinter.
'Trouble in the Works', a farce, takes a hilarious look at the trials and tribulations suffered by a factory owner whose workers have 'taken a turn against the products'.
'Request Stop' sees a young woman reveal surprising motives, as she berates a stranger at a bus stop.
'That's Your Trouble' charts the course of bickering between friends as a sandwich board starts an innocent discussion that quickly becomes heated.
'Party Time' is a darkly comic short play. The play, which takes the form of a political allegory, explores the multiple underlying tensions at an upper class party: what is this mysterious club that everyone is raving about? Why has there been a disturbance outside? And where, we wonder, is Jimmy?
