Like Pinter's earlier plays. Pinter deals with bare essentials. There are only three characters -- a man named Deeley, his wife, Kate, and Anna, a friend of Kate's whom they have not seen in 20 years. Beneath the surface of their taut, witty conversation lurks suggestions of darkness, until the present is overwhelmed with intimations of some frightening past.
