The Dumb Waiter

Podcast with Jai Mallett

  • by

In this podcast we chated with Jai Mallet, one of the founding members of Wake Up Theater and who provided the inspiration to bring Nobel Prize winning Harold Pinter’s play The Dumb Waiter to the stage.

Pinter and Protest

Harold Pinter was considered to be one of the most influential of modern British dramatists with a career spanning more than 50 years as a playwright, screenwriter, director and actor. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. He wrote plays that emphasized that unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. Coming to understand what this means for me personally has been a long journey.
