‘The Hothouse’ review: is new adaptation of Pinter worth a punt?

The Hot House
The late, legendary playwright Harold Pinter wasn’t all maddeningly cryptic dialogue and insanely lengthy pauses – in 1958 he wrote ‘The Hothouse’, a rather jolly satire on totalitarian regimes. Hot on the heels of the brilliant, James McAvoy-starring ‘Macbeth’, Jamie Lloyd’s revival is the second play at Trafalgar Studios’s ultra sexy Trafalgar Transformed season (for which all Monday tickets are just £15). And it’s got another big name cast, with Simon Russell Beale as the bonkers warden of a strange ‘institution’ and John Simm as his scary henchman. But is there method to this revival’s madness?
