A Slight Ache

by Harold Pinter

Directed by Ava Hunt

On the longest day of the year …

At height of summer …

On the surface everything appears to be perfect in Edward and Flora’s life… But the presence of a supposedly innocent Matchseller, triggers a series of revelations, and their lives will never be the same again.


A Slight Ache, tells the story of an older couple living in a rural area, whose marriage is disrupted by an external force – a Matchseller.  The Matchseller’s presence once invited into their home, slowly, silently, contributes to the marriage’s demise.  

A team of seasoned Derbyshire actors bring this funny, disturbing, and powerful play to the stage, beautifully celebrating Pinter’s fascination with the interloper.

The performances last one hour and will be followed by a short Q&A.

Age guidance: 16+
Advisories: Contains references to historical sexual violence.
