In an old and slightly seedy house in North London there lives a family of men: Max, the aging but still aggressive patriarch; his younger, ineffectual brother Sam; and two of Max's three sons, neither of whom is married -- Lenny, a small-time pimp, and Joey, who dreams of success as a boxer. Into this sinister abode comes the eldest son, Teddy, who, having spent the past six years teaching philosophy in America, is now bringinghis wife, Ruth, home to visit the family she has never met. As the play progresses, the younger brothers make increasingly outrageous passes at their sister-in-law until they are practically making love to her in front of her stunned but strangely aloof husband.

    Davvero! Forse più che in qualsiasi altro Autore teatrale, in Pinter si ha la sensazione di come le parole creino una situazione, un dramma: esteriore e interiore a volte irrisolvibile che minaccia un forse posticcio ma tranquillo status quo. Son contento gli abbiano dato il Nobel nel 2005. Se lo meritava.
