The Pinter At The Pinter season culminates with Pinter Seven, two unmissable comedies that explore the political machinations of the powerful and the powerless.
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.
Please note there is a free Q&A with members of the company on Tuesday 12 February 2019.
Pinter Seven will star Danny Dyer (Human Traffic, The Football Factory), who had a close personal friendship with Pinter, and Martin Freeman (The Office, Sherlock, The Hobbit). National Theatre favourite John Heffernan will lead A Slight Ache.
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 are being presented in repertoire by a company of world-class creatives, many of whom were Harold Pinter’s friends and collaborators.
