The Caretaker is coming to the Old Vic

When it premiered in 1960, The Caretaker changed the face of modern theatre. Now Harold Pinter’s groundbreaking classic comes to The Old Vic in a new production directed by Matthew Warchus.

Disturbed handyman Aston has invited an irascible tramp to stay with him at his brother’s jumbled London flat. At first it seems that the manipulative guest will take advantage of his vulnerable host. But when Aston’s brother Mick arrives, an enigmatic power struggle emerges between the three men that is in equal parts menacing, touching and darkly comic.

Timothy Spall is one of Britain’s best-loved and most talented character actors. Most recently he has received wide acclaim for his role as J.M.W Turner in Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner (2014), for which he won seven international awards, including the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor Award.

In the cast also Daniel Mays (Atonement) as Aston and former BAFTA Rising Star George MacKay (Private Peaceful, How I live now, Sunshine on Leith, Pride, ByPass, For Those in Peril) as Mick.

At The Old Vic from March 26
