About This Show

Harold Pinter’s A Slight Ache originally surfaced to great acclaim in 1960 in a production the NY World Telegram and Sun cited as “the most unusual play Off-Broadway.” Forty-four years hence, the nascent CellarDoor Theatre presents a rare resurrection of this elusive jewel.

This summer, join two unwittingly precarious English aristocrats, Flora and Edward, in their psychotic battle with a villainous wasp and a derelict, parasitic matchseller. Take a rickety mine cart ride through the warped psyches of Pinter’s tragicomedy of manners that the NY Post declared “[demonstrates] again what an unusual and exciting dramatist Harold Pinter is.” Laura Kindred and Zach Wegner star in this production directed by Braden Matthews.
