Pryce gives a first-rate performance that gradually reveals the viper lurking underneath the vagrant.
The Guardian (UK)
In The Caretaker, a pair of working-class brothers allows a homeless man to stay in their decrepit London flat, an act of compassion that sparks a cycle of cruelties, delusions, and shifting loyalties in a desperate struggle over territory.
Pinter's first great success, this work powerfully displays his sharp intelligence, masterful and spare use of language, and uncompromising exploration of life's menace and comedy.
Jonathan Pryce - two-time Tony and Olivier Award winner (Miss Saigon, Hamlet) and film actor (Brazil, Pirates of the Caribbean) - leads a compelling cast in the first major revival of Harold Pinter's work since his death.
This superb production by Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse/Theatre Royal Bath won glowing reviews in London and Liverpool for its penetrating new take on the play and for Pryce's tour-de-force performance as a repellant, darkly funny, and deeply human Davies.
