Crediton Actors Workshop present Harold Pinter's early account of fears and desires in rural England.

Edward and Flora's security and calm is disrupted by the presence of the Matchseller at their back gate. The metaphor of the Matchseller, a physical alien presence, resonates with contemporary fear and prejudice concerning the perceived threat of the unwanted cultural/religious/racial Other.
