About the Show

The Actors Studio revives Harold Pinter's classic drama in which an old friend's visit turns into an examination of the slipperiness of memory, or perhaps reality itself. Free and open to the public,

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent

See it if you like a super production that worked better for us than the Broadway production. Narrowed it to 7 possible.explanations.

Don't see it if you do not want to think what Pinter is trying to say.

Great writing, Masterful

See it if U appreciate well written dialogue,wry humor,nuanced performances & offbeat relationships.Actors a little young for the roles but very good.

Don't see it if You need answers/a clear cut dénouement. Pinter somehow manages a tricky balancing act between naturalistic and surrealistic brilliantly

Far more insightful pinter than last year's broadway production

See it if Well-modulated direction and performances by experienced Actors Studio members. Can't believe I saw a production this professional for free

Don't see it if Still a baffling Pinter drama, but with more clarity than Clive Owen and Eve Best were able to muster. Chris Stack and Sayra Player are sexy

Confusing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you like fluidity and openness in the understanding of the play, or if you like it when you leave a play confused but thoughtful.

Don't see it if you don't like it when a play is open to interpretation or if you need to understand a play completely.

Ambitious, Clever, Sleek, Intriguing performances, Thought-provoking

See it if You'd like to see an Actors' Studio production, want to further explore the Pinter work, see a younger cast tackle the work

Don't see it if You don't like Pinter and/or this deliciously perplexing play, you don't like accommodating the contradictions & mysteries of the work

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you love to think and enjoy Pinter.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of Pinter and ambiguous endings.

Dated, Well-acted, Bleak

See it if you might find Pinter's 'memory plays' & talky character studies of self-involved 70's yuppies interesting

Don't see it if Drunken banter between superficial people bores you; you're not intrigued by a free play @ the legendary Actor's Studio w/ rising stars

Poor acting, Poor direction, Banal

See it if you have never seen a Pinter play. However, the director completely ignores the subtext of the play, which is so critical to this play.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of Pinter. Read more
