One such play is The Dumb Waiter, which will be staged on June 29, 2024 at Sanskriti Bhavan in Panjim. The play was written by Harold Pinter, a British playwright, screenwriter, director and actor, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005.

The Dumb Waiter is a one-act play depicting the power of authority and power imbalances. The 55 minute play has been directed by Ankush Pednekar; and stars Mayur Mayenkar and Salil Naik.

The lighting and sets have been arranged by Dnyanesh Moghe; with music by Sachin Chowgule, while Sanjay Gaonkar has done the setup.
