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.
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 and Game Of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan 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.
