  2. Two Characters, Two Chairs, Two Lamps Rebecca and Devlin Ashes to Ashes The duality, the two ness overwhelms the play, not only in terms of characters but also existence Ashes to Ashes is Pinter s long desired take on holocaust Rebecca a Jewish name in her British household has an apparent innocent conversation with her partner Devlin, far removed from the memories of the holocaust In her mid forties in 1996, she was, quite plainly, not born during the second world war.And yet she has heard acco [...]


  3. I didn t really understand all the symbolism so I had to look it up then that made me extremely uncomfortable No wonder I didn t read this in school My definition of a good read is something that makes you uncomfortable upon thought, though, so for that reason, I am okay with this play It just made me feel very uncomfortable due to exactly what its implications meant And anyway, on the face of it, who likes stories of abuse



  4. Non credo che possiamo ricominciare di nuovo Abbiamo cominciato molto tempo fa Cominciato Non possiamo ricominciare di nuovo Possiamo finire di nuovo Si pu finire una volta e poi finire di nuovo pp 39, 41




  5. Pinter seems to enjoy misleading his audience as his Beckett like dramas unfold in darkness, and Ashes to Ashes is a perfect representation of this point This one act play is fantastic, and I suspect that many people walk away confused, disappointed, or somehow feeling that they ve missed the point I would also suspect that those who walk away with confidence in their understanding are in disagreement over the meaning of the play with those who also feel the same way With this in mind, I think i [...]


  6. Violence is the theme of the play where masculine qualities have metastasised into something horrifying that are first manifested between the female protagonist Rebecca and her former lover and later symbolically between the he and the she Devlin, Rebecca s present partner, is being portrayed as the fact finder, who is full of curiosity and sense of reason He kept trying to steer Rebecca back to her original story about the abuse that she had suffered at the hands of her former lover who worked [...]


  7. Harold Pinter s 1996 play ASHES TO ASHES is a dialogue between Rebecca and Devlin, a married couple Devlin is curious about Rebecca s former lover, here called a factory owner, here called a travel agent, who dominated her completely REBECCA Well, he would stand over me and clench his fist And then he d put his other hand on my neck and grip it and bring my head towards him His fist grazed my mouth And he d say Kiss my fist Devlin s proddings reveal that Rebecca s lover was no ordinary travel ag [...]



  8. as powerful as any play pinter has written, ashes to ashes, while exploring the familiar themes of memory, violence, and the past, is an extraordinarily distinct work pinter has mentioned in an interview that he was inspired to write ashes to ashes after reading a biography of albert speer, adolf hitler s chief architect, later known as the nazi who said sorry while the play does not deal directly with the third reich, it certainly alludes to it, particularly during the one act s conclusion pint [...]



  9. I started reading Ashes to Ashes with the intention of going at it for a couple of pages, then putting it down to attend to pressing matters, but I ended up reading it straight through, so hypnotic did I find the words to be fair, it is a short play, and I did not pause, or consider those Pinter pauses, as an actor might And I will read it again.


  10. I do not think that Pinter was at his best in his short plays about small people with wider political consequences, and this is one of those Having registered this problem, this play benefits by the wonderful Pinteresque dialog, the slow emotional reveal, and the depth of the feelings It is tedious, however, to encounter yet another clueless academic.


  11. Sometimes I find Pinter really hard to read I think this might have been better on stage The glimpses we catch of Rebecca s past are really heartbreaking, but I feel frustrated that she can t keep her thoughts straight and we don t get to know much about her I think her husband is frustrated too


  12. Harold Pinter as enigmatical as ever Just when I thought I was getting the hang of the his stuff, this play comes along I ll probably have to reread it a few times or see it in performance to fully grasp it.




  13. This is a terrific play About torture and relationship it is abstract and deconstructed than Dorfman s Death of a Maiden It is a terrific piece and a great audition resource.





  14. requires some imagination, sound and vision being essential elements i realize that s the case in theater in a general way, but there are reasons why it is particularly important here.
