The Hothouse was first produced in 1980 at the Hampstead Theatre, London, though Harold Pinter wrote the play in 1958 just before commencing work on The Caretaker.

The Hothouse is one of Pinter’s best plays: one that deals with the worm-eaten corruption of bureaucracy, the secrecy of government and the disjunction between language and experience.’ Michael Billington
