Memory, menace, and manners take on multiple permutations in Harold Pinter's 1971 play about what seems to be a love triangle. Having proved a dab hand at Chekhov for Strawdog Theatre, Kimberly Senior returns to the company to direct this taut, ultimately haunting portrait of middle-aged marrieds Deeley and Kate, whose lives are disturbed by the arrival of Anna, Kate's flatmate from 20 years back. Michaela Petro plays Anna with a stunning mix of cool sexual bravado and vulnerability, while Abigail Boucher's Kate and John Henry Roberts's Deeley bring subtle shifts to this opaque but fascinating meditation on the ghosts of youth. --Kerry Reid
