Named after the first ever landlady of the public house, The Lucy Davis Vaults will be a distinctive and original underground site for theatre. To mark the end of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2014, Ransack Theatre will be cutting the ribbon on The Lucy Davis Vaults with a site-specific revival of Pinter's classic two-hander.

The plot follows Ben and Gus as they sit and wait for another 'job', but soon realise that this one is unlike any other. As the two characters try to meet the obscure demands, the alarming conclusion looms.

Alastair Michael plays Ben, James Warburton is Gus and the music is by by Mark Harris, with Stage Design by Kaylie Joy Black. The production is produced by Ransack Theatre.

The Dumb Waiter is at The Kings Arms' Lucy David Vaults from 26 – 31 July.
