Australian Premiere/Exclusive to Adelaide
STARRING: Jonathan Pryce
“PRYCE GIVES A FIRST-RATE PERFORMANCE.”
“It’s about two brothers and a caretaker,” Harold Pinter said simply of his early masterwork The Caretaker. More than 50 years since the play’s debut, West End powerhouse Jonathan Pryce is the definitive Caretaker in a “near flawless production” endorsed by the late Pinter.
After captivating London with rave reviews and sell-out performances Pryce makes his Australian debut in a production remounted exclusively for Adelaide Festival before its San Francisco and New York tour.
Don’t miss legendary film and stage actor Pryce in one of the 20th century’s most important and compelling plays.
