"Ashes to Ashes is an extraordinarily pwerful work: elusive, mesmeric, disturbing."
The Guardian

"In Pinter you find expressed the great struggle of the 20th Century - between primitive rage on the one hand and liberal generousity on the other."
Dave Hare, Playwright

 

Rebecca is haunted by the memory of a sinister yet seductive relationship.  Her recollections of a once caring lover are merged with dreadful images of brutality and genocide, Devlin, her husband needs a way into her thoughts and is compelled to interrogate her to get to the truth.  Slowly as the play progresses Rebecca's dark secret is revealed.
