The Hothouse

Written by Harold Pinter
Directed by Nike Doukas

 

Harold Pinter’s The Hothouse tells a blisteringly funny story of a government-run institution in which the wardens may be more mad than the patients. Filled with Pinter’s biting political commentary on the perils of unchecked power, the battle for control results in absurdly comedic mayhem.
