Sometimes when there are gaps in the sentences it implies that that person is lying, and in this play in particular, a lot of lies are told and the topic of them is quite ominous. "Ruth: We used to pass a.....a large white water tower. This place.....this house.....was very big.....the trees....there was a lake, you see..." Ruth may not be lying here but it shows that she is a very open person to be enclosing this information to someone she barely knows. "Joey: And then we....well, by the kerb, we saw this parked car....with a couple of girls in it."

Compare my devised thematic work to another play or other types of drama, which have different styles, periods, cultures, and show the relationships between the texts.
Many people have puzzled over Pinter and have different interpretations of his plays. I am going to look at his play "The Dumb Waiter". 'The Dumb Waiter' is about two hired killers who stalk their prey, to the point of hysteria. It is set in one room, with the fourth wall removed. Which is similar to what we are considering to do, either that or split staging. The two characters are Ben and Gus. With in the play, Ben is the dominant character; he reigns over Gus in status.
