Of the four Harold Pinter plays my theatre group is doing in a couple of weeks, The Black and White is one of my favorites. It's not like some of the others that have a clear punchline, but all the way through the text is entertaining and funny and also quite weird, and seemingly going in two different directions at the same time.
The only comparison I can really think of, is: If this play were a character, it'd be quite close to That 70s Show's old hippie Leo. Hilarious, eccentric, but sometimes
Hilarious. I would LOVE to play this. Wonderfully weird.
