Yet more stars of the stage have joined the Pinter At The Pinter season, the unprecedented celebratory season of the Nobel Prize winning playwright.

Pinter Four (Moonlight/Night School) sees the previously announced Jessica Barden joined by Janie Dee, Peter Polycarpou, Bríd Brennan, Robert Glenister, Isis Hainsworth, Dwane Walcott and Al Weaver. National Theatre regular John Heffernan will lead the comic masterpiece A Slight Ache; he joins Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman in Pinter Seven (A Slight Ache/The Dumb Waiter).

Elsewhere, London comedy favourite Tom Edden (previous credits include One Man, Two Guvnors) joins Keith Allen, Lee Evans, Tamsing Greig and Meera Syal in Pinter Three (Landscape/A Kind Of Alaska/Monologue), while Katherine Kingsley (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Eleanor Matsuura (soon to star in the next season of The Walking Dead) complete the cast of Pinter Six (Party Time/Celebration).

The Pinter At The Pinter season is marking the 10th anniversary of Harold Pinter’s death by staging all of his short plays, alongside a selection of poems and sketches. The programme started at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 6 September with Pinter One (One For The Road/The New World Order/Mountain Language/Ashes To Ashes), starring the likes of Paapa Essiedu, Kate O’Flynn and Antony Sher.

Moreover, Mark Rylance will take part in a special Q&A on 2 October as part of his two charity performances of Art, Truth & Politics, ahead of the evening performances of Pinter One and Pinter Two.
