BBC 1981
Dir Kenneth Ives
With Warren Mitchell, Jonathan Pryce, Kenneth Cranham

Kenneth Ives’s production, filmed for television and then staged at the National Theatre, brought out different aspects of this endlessly fascinating play. Mitchell highlighted the ruthlessness, as well as the insecurity, of the bullying vagrant. Ives also made us realise that the touching relationship between the two brothers, the entrepreneurial Mick and the brain-damaged Aston, lies at the heart of Pinter’s play.
