Harold Pinter's "The Dumb Waiter" tells the tragicomic tale of two hit men hiding out in the basement of a derelict building waiting for the delivery of their next victim. Pinter’s words are not always what drives the narrative; it’s often the unspoken dialogue that delivers the most profound message, pushing the actors to explore physical and emotional interactions beyond language. Featuring (in alphabetical order) Ben Crowley and London Kim. Directed by Julie Nunis. Ben Crowley has been seen in Spike Lee’s "Sucker Free City," "The Hills Have Eyes 2," and "Ratched "with Cynthia Nixon. London Kim’s credits include Robert Rodriguez’s "Matador," Clint Eastwood’s "Letters from Iwo Jima," and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Julie Nunis is a documentary film director ("Jazz v. Punk") and was on the producing team of Steve Martin’s play "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.

Reviews

Wonderfully directed by Julie Nunis who placed her own original stamp on this production and effectively made it her own. Guided by a strong cast, the production was smooth, sincere with many layers, wonderfully connected, and most of all frustratingly ambiguous so that, upon viewing, concentrated engagement with the characters was an absolute must.

The lower class English accents by the actors were riveting.
