Previously announced as part of the Hampstead Theatre's 60th anniversary celebrations, the off-West End venue will return with a revival of The Dumb Waiter. Written by Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter, The Dumb Waiter will be performed from 18 November - 19 December.

"I am so delighted to be able to share this news today" said Roxana Silbert, artistic director of Hampstead Theatre. "As Hampstead Theatre, along with our colleagues in live performance, start to find our feet in this 'new normal', we are very excited to be able to present Alice Hamilton's 60th anniversary production of The Dumb Waiter."

The Dumb Waiter follows two hitmen, Ben and Gus, as they await instructions for their next job. They start to receive messages for their next step, but it's via a dumb waiter.

Alice Hamilton directs the 60th anniversary production of The Dumb Waiter, first performed at the Hampstead Theatre in 1960. Scenic design is by James Perkins, with lighting design by James Whiteside and composition and sound design by Giles Thomas.

Casting for The Dumb Waiter is unknown.

The Dumb Waiter is at Hampstead Theatre from 18 November - 19 December.
