George Irving as Duff
George Irving as Duff ...brilliantly deploying Pinter’s notorious pauses to illuminate what shadows their seemingly random recollections of feeding ducks, lying on a beach, standing on a railway platform.

George Irving as Julius Caesar Perhaps the strongest performance though George Irving's excellent Caesar, with just the right mix of arrogance and suspicion. What comes out strongly are undertones of Marlon Brando's Godfather. julius caesar programme
