The highly-anticipated, star-studded celebration of Harold Pinter’s sensational short plays is in full swing. The Pinter At The Pinter season, which marks 10 years since the revered playwright’s death, opened earlier this month. Now, Pinter Two – featuring comic masterpieces The Lover and The Collection – starring David Suchet, Hayley Squires, Russell Tovey, and John Macmillan has opened and we’ve got a sneak peek at the brilliant production.

Get a taste of the second instalment, below.

Playful and provocative, The Lover features a conventional, suburban couple in unconventional circumstances. The Collection – hailed as one of the outstanding plays of the 20th Century by Laurence Olivier – delves into the intriguing mystery of two London couples linked by sexual desire and a quest for supremacy.

The Pinter At The Pinter season is presented in repertoire by a world-class cast, many of whom were Harold Pinter’s friends and frequent collaborators. The cast includes Keith Allen, Jessica Barden, Ron Cook, Phil Davies, Danny Dyer, Paapa Essiedu, Lee Evans, Martin Freeman, Rupert Graves, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks, Celia Imrie, John Macmillan, Emma Naomi, Tracy Ann Oberman, Kate O’Flynn, Jonjo O’Neill, Abraham Popoola, Antony Sher, John Simm, Hayley Squires, Maggie Steed, David Suchet, Meera Syal, Luke Thallon, Russell Tovey, Penelope Wilton and Nicholas Woodeson.
