Rehearsals have begun for a new production of The Caretaker, which will be at Bristol Old Vic in September.

The play was written by Harold Pinter and explores everyone’s search for a sense of belonging in life.

The Caretaker sees Aston welcome homeless Davies into his dilapidated flat to shelter him from the violence of the streets.

Davies attempts to leave his past behind and start afresh, but he is not quite sure what Aston is offering him, whether it is a friendship, shelter, a job, or just a home.

This production sets the paranoia of living in an ever-changing landscape against the backdrop of Britain’s politically and culturally uncertain times.

The Caretaker will be at Bristol Old Vic, in King Street, from September 9-10. Tickets, priced £7.50-31.50, are available by calling 01179 87877 or via www.bristololdvic.org.uk

There are varying performance times, which are available on the theatre’s website.
