One for the Road

12 - 14 April 2007

by Harold Pinter

“You’re a civilised man, so am I. Sit down.”

Nicolas is an urbane, suave and civilised man. He is also a torturer. He calmly interrogates Victor, his wife Gila and their seven year old son Nicky for an unnamed crime. The increasingly horrifying series of events is what the state demands.

One For The Road, Harold Pinter’s most searing political work, forces us to see things we would rather ignore: the prevalence of torture and oppression in our civilised society today.

‘A flawless richly resonant miniature masterpiece’
