Event Information

The Caretaker (1963)

Written by Harold Pinter and directed by Clive Donner

Starring  Alan Bates, Donald Pleasance, Robert Shaw

Whilst renovating his dilapidated home Aston (Robert Shaw) invites an irritable and devious vagrant (Donald Pleasence) to stay. But, when his ill-tempered brother Mick (Alan Bates) returns, an ominous yet darkly comic power struggle between the trio commences. It is a study of shared illusion, tragic dispossession and the fraternal bond of unspoken love, combines mesmerising performances and the magic of Pinter's dialogue.

According to Janet Moat, "the film is striking. Donner deploys a non-musical soundtrack, close-ups and two-shots to unsettling and menacing effect." 

Join us for this special event screening in the Drama Theare at the WPCC and for a complimentary drink afterwards at the Establishment Bar.
