The Lover
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A beautiful young housewife anticipates her lovers arrival; she pours the drinks, paces the carpet and awaits instructions. But at six oclock her husband returns, expecting more than a smile and a gin and tonic. Sex games in suburbia become the weapon to corrode marriage and identity in Harold Pinters unnerving black comedy. Praise for Backspins previous shows: A thrilling experience (Lady Antonia Fraser Pinter). Backspin is bringing the work of Harold Pinter to the next generation (Penelope Wilton OBE). An impressively executed piece of theatre (ThreeWeeks). A sparkling production (Professor Stanley Wells CBE).
