The Caretaker - Taking pictures

Managed to watch the second half of The Caretaker yesterday. I think it is something quite special and the cast (seeing as there is only 3 of them) act their socks off. The contrast between Jeff Hordley's volatile Mick and Aston's gentle slightly muddled nature work in brilliant contrast to each other with the wonder that is Paul Webster (how many lines can that man remember?) swinging between the two is gripping.

Matthew's (Aston) long monologue in the second act about his experiences of...well I won't ruin it for you...but let's just say his past experiences is chilling. Especially due to his beautiful, slightly bewildered and touchingly reticent delivery....wonderful stuff!
