By Harold Pinter
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
September 12 - October 12, 2008
Sinister and scathingly funny, this dark comedy unlocks the secrets of a state-run "rest home" where the staff is even more disturbed than the inmates. An early, prescient play from 2005's Nobel Prize winner, The Hothouse combines the razor-sharp dialogue, playful anarchy, and shocking twists that make Pinter one of the world's greatest living dramatists.

"Fifty years after its creation Hothouse makes its Philadelphia premiere in a thrilling production that was well worth the wait." –Philadelphia Weekly
"The hilarity begins with the opening lines and continues almost without pause until the end." –The Bulletin
