Description

"An oblique comedy of menace, unsettling, exquisitely wrought and written...? complex excursion into the by now familiar Pinter world of mixed reality and fantasy, of human worth and human degradation."-New York Times Set against the decayed elegance of a house in London's Hampstead Heath, in No Man's Land two men face each other over a drink. Do they know each other, or is each performing an elaborate character of recognition? Their ambiguity-and the comedy-intensify with the arrival of two younger men, the one ostensibly a manservant, the other a male secretary. All four inhabit a no man's land between time present and time remembered, between reality and imagination-a territory which Pinter explores with his characteristic mixture of biting wit, aggression, and anarchic sexuality.
