Onion Soup

By Michael Ramus & Will Davies

A pub crawl in which nothing happens. Five times. It's 1961 and Harold Pinter's 'The Caretaker' has just opened in Paris to devastating reviews; but whether by chance or providence Pinter's penpal and lifelong idol Samuel Beckett stumbles into the same bar. Together the pair spend the evening trawling the pubs of Paris, forever dodging closing time.

Based on the recollections of Harold Pinter in his 'Eulogy for Samuel', Onion Soup is the fictitious imagining of what might have taken place that night...

Onion Soup is the product of a Research and Development project in conjunction with Will Davies, and workshops delivered by Downstage Write.

Rehearsed readings were directed by Jon Nash, with performances by

Steve Jacobs......................Samuel Beckett

Simon Edwards..................Harold Pinter

Florian Saturley..................Waiter

Onion Soup is now available as a theatre script and radio play. For more information about rights and availability please get in touch.
