It was with this play that Harold Pinter had his first major success. The obsessive caretaker, Davies, whose papers are in Sidcup, is a classic comic creation, and his uneasy relationship with the enigmatic Aston and Mick established the author’s individuality with an international audience.

The Caretaker was first presented at the Arts Theatre, London, in April 1960.
