Ashes to Ashes, one of Pinter's later, more unknown works, is a harrowing insight into the relationship between married couple Devlin and Rebecca. Devlin's relentless questioning of Rebecca about a former lover leads her to reveal that the lover has played a shocking part in mankind's darkest hour, and Rebecca soons realises that she too feels inextricably linked to this event, but not as perpetrator, rather as a victim. Ashes to Ashes begins as a chilling domestic drama which escalates to an altogether more sinister level, as we are reminded that the personal and the political are often all too indivisible.
