The caretaker ; and the dumb waiter : two plays by Harold Pinter( Book )
26 editions published between 1960 and 2003 in English and held by 1,941 libraries worldwide
"In all of Pinter's plays, seemingly ordinary events become charged with profound, if elusive, meaning, haunting pathos, and wild comedy. In The Caretaker, a tramp finds lodging in the derelict house of two brothers; in The Dumb Waiter, a pair of gunmen wait for the kill in a decayed lodging house. Harold Pinter gradually exposes the inner strains and fears of his characters, alternating hilarity and terror to create an almost unbearable edge of tension."--Page 4 of cover
No man's land by Harold Pinter( Book )
98 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,763 libraries worldwide
Harold Pinter's latest full-length play is set against the decayed elegance of a house in London's Hampstead Heath. Two men face each other over a drink. Do they know each other, or is each performing an elaborate charade of recognition? The ambiguity--and the comedy--intensify with the arrival of two younger men, the one ostensibly a manservant, the other a male secretary. All four inhabit a no man's land between time present and time remembered, between reality and imagination--a territory which Pinter explores with his characteristic mixture of biting wit, aggression, and anarchic sexuality that has continually made his plays masterpieces of the modern theater [Publisher description]

The hothouse : a play by Harold Pinter( Book )
46 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,581 libraries worldwide
"A black comedy set in a government-run mental institution, The Hothouse revolves around a sinister murder plot hatched against a backdrop of corruption, sexual favors, and hopeless bureaucratic ineptitude. Beneath the surface comedy there are frightening implications concerning a bureaucracy ostensibly dedicated to humanitarian concerns, but where people are referred to by numbers and forgotten as easily as troublesome figures on a balance sheet. Written in 1958, The Hothouse was first performed at London's Hampstead Theatre in April, 1980, in a production directed by Pinter himself."--Jacket
