Hampstead Theatre to reopen for a limited period with 60th Anniversary production of Harold Pinter’s ‘The Dumb Waiter’

Hampstead Theatre has today announced that it will be reopening for a limited period this November with Alice Hamilton‘s 60th Anniversary production of Harold Pinter’s celebrated early play, The Dumb Waiter.

Originally programmed for spring, The Dumb Waiter will now run from 18 November to 19 December 2020, and tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 14 October at 10am at hampsteadtheatre.com.

The play first premiered as part of Hampstead Theatre’s inaugural season in 1960 directed by Hampstead’s founder James Roose-Evans.

Alice Hamilton will be joined by a creative team including designer James Perkins, lighting designer James Whiteside and composer and sound designer Giles Thomas.

Hampstead Theatre will reopen with 193 socially distanced seats, and seating will be arranged to ensure there is at least 1 metre plus between seats. The spacious modern building also has the added benefit of state-of-the-art ventilation. The air in the auditorium and foyer is 100% fresh air introduced from the outdoors meaning none of it is ‘recycled’ air.  The ventilation system draws stale air out and introduces entirely fresh air into the main house auditorium at 5,300 litres per second.  The air in the main house auditorium is changed completely every 4 minutes and 45 seconds.

In the event of The Dumb Waiter needing to be postponed, full refunds or credit vouchers will be offered.
