Wootton Country Players

 
 

Ben (Guy Quint) and Gus (Tim Dillistone) await their instructions in Dumb Waiter.

In a basement room, two hit men - Ben and Gus - are waiting for their next job. The room is windowless and sparse, with nothing but two beds, an old chair and a dumb-waiter. The two men grow agitated at the unknown. Do their increasingly menacing tones give any indication as to the play’s dramatic conclusion?

Ben tries to read the newspaper despite interruptions from Gus.

I wonder when these sheets were last changed......?

Tensions start to rise...

They discover a speaking tube but who is on the other end?

Bizarre orders start to arrive via the dumb-waiter.....

... which they attempt to fulfill using their meagre supplies!
