HAROLD PINTER THE HOTHOUSE PDF

It is so deep and represent the real corruption occurs everywhere. Roote, the manager of a rest house or a psychiatric hospital as I think, was involved in rape of a patient, killing another one. And he was always talking about his great efforts and insisting on the importance of order so as to raise their assembly high sky and let it to continue its false success, his subordinate Gibbs was saying all the time Yas, sir. Gibbs I do like it, it is the best of Harold Pinter till now as I see. And the play starts with 2 opposing events a woman giving birth!

Share via Email John Simm is flawless as the conniving Gibbs suggesting the perennial company man, even down to the pens in his breast pocket. The history of The Hothouse is that Pinter wrote it in , put it to one side and only rescued it from oblivion in What astonishes me every time I see it is how eerily prophetic it is in its vision of a world where psychiatric hospitals are used as a means of curing social dissidents.

In this case we are in some deeply English "rest home" run by a tetchy ex-colonel, Roote, who on Christmas Day finds himself confronted by a dual crisis: one of his numerically identified patients, , has died while another, , has unexpectedly given birth. What follows is a blackly comic portrait of the insidious corruption of power in which Roote finds himself increasingly cornered.

Blame for the pregnancy is placed on a luckless security man, Lamb, who, if not exactly led to the slaughter, is reduced to a state of catatonia. And the desperate Roote finds himself drawn into the web of guilt by his staff including the openly insubordinate Lush, the mockingly sexual Miss Cutts and the Machiavellian organisation man Gibbs.

It is, in the end, a deeply moral play suggesting that state-sanctioned torture and cruelty exist but are inexorably undermined by their disregard of the natural laws. It is also a biliously funny play and the casting of Simon Russell Beale as Roote ensures that the laughs come thick and fast.

John Simm, however, is flawless as the conniving Gibbs suggesting the perennial company man, even down to the pens in his breast pocket, with all the instincts of a serpent. And there is a wealth of fine supporting performances. John Heffernan as the mutinous Lush is a dangerous dandy in a purple suit, Harry Melling as the sacrificial Lamb has all the nervous energy of the promotion-hungry newcomer and Indira Varma as Miss Cutts is a sumptuous mix of parodic vamp and the Lady Macbeth of the filing cabinets.

But I was reminded how Pinter once remarked that The Caretaker was funny only up to a point and it was because of that point that he wrote it. For more, go to guardian.

The Hothouse – review

The friends he made in those days—most particularly Henry Woolf , Michael Mick Goldstein and Morris Moishe Wernick—have always been a vital part of the emotional texture of his life. Pinter, poised to swing his bat, has a wicked glint in his eye; testosterone all but flies off the canvas. Pinter adores women, enjoys flirting with them, worships their resilience and strength. He was initially refused registration as a conscientious objector , leading to his twice being prosecuted, and fined, for refusing to accept a medical examination, before his CO registration was ultimately agreed. My favourite roles were undoubtedly the sinister ones. Their son, Daniel, was born in
