By turns terrifying, moving and wildly funny, The Room
is Harold Pinter’s very first play. Rose prefers to stay in, safe from the hostile world outside, but her seemingly cozy sanctuary is continually being invaded. With visits from the landlord, a couple in search of their own space, a stranger and the return of her husband, it becomes increasingly unclear whether the menace comes from within or without. The Room
is a precarious examination of private fears vs. social fears, as seen through the lens of the working class.
