The Pinter At The Pinter season culminates with two unmissable comedies that explore the political machinations of the powerful and the powerless, starring Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman.
When a mysterious figure enters their elegant country home, the lives of Flora and Edward are changed forever in A Slight Ache.
Then Gus and Ben, two hit-men, await their next job in a derelict building – but what is the cost of their quest for meaning? The Dumb Waiter, a modern classic, explores this.
Both plays were written in the late 1950s, and are now revived and directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Pinter At The Pinter is a unique event featuring all twenty short plays written by the greatest British playwright of the 20th Century. They have never been performed together in a season of this kind. The twenty plays will be presented in repertoire by a company of world-class creatives, many of whom were Harold Pinter’s friends and collaborators.
Harold Pinter was born in Hackney, London in 1930. He lived with Antonia Fraser from 1975 until his death on Christmas Eve 2008.
Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Pinter was lauded throughout his life as one of the greatest living playwrights, who had a revolutionary impact on how theatre was written and performed, and who it represented on stage. An establishment agitator who challenged injustice, he became as famous for his political interventions as for his writing later in his life.
His genius was recognised within his lifetime as a recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005, the Companion of Honour for services to Literature, the Legion D’Honneur, the European Theatre Prize, the Laurence Olivier Award and the Moliere D’Honneur for lifetime achievement. In 1999 he was made a Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature, in addition to 18 other honorary degrees.
