Compass Theatre Company presents

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2007 THE DUMB WAITER By Harold Pinter This is Harold Pinter at his most accessible. This short and dynamic piece has all the ingredients that created the term Pinteresque; absurdity, humour and terror packed like sardines into an exhilarating 50 minutes. THE EVILS OF TOBACCO by Anton Chekhov New version by Neil Sissons Meet hen-pecked Mr Nyukhin. He’s here to give you a talk about the evils of tobacco but actually has lots of other things on his mind. How he is plagued by the number thirteen and by his daughters who put pepper in his snuff box. Amongst other thing...No wonder he’s got a twitch! THE PROPOSAL By Anton Chekhov New version by Neil Sissons A merry jest in one act. Ivan Lomov, a bag of nerves, desperately wants to marry the daughter of his neighbour. But while making his proposal he is so hindered by excruciating nervousness that rather than ending up in the arms of his beloved they end up in a flaming row.
