"A Slight Ache" Youlgrave


"A Slight Ache" by Harold Pinter

Directed by Ava Hunt

One day at the 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.

The performance is an hour long and will be followed by a short Q&A.

After a distinguished career spanning decades, Maggie Ford, a revered actor based in Derbyshire, is set to make a triumphant return to the stage at the age of 84. This team of seasoned Derbyshire actors bring this funny, disturbing, and powerful play to the stage, beautifully celebrating Pinter’s fascination with the interloper.
