Pinter Three comprises spellbinding evocations of loneliness, isolation and the strange mists of time, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Landscape is a minimalist marvel: a woman is locked in a beautiful memory and her husband demands to be heard. Then, in A Kind of Alaska, Deborah awakes from a twenty-nine-year sleep and is suspended between the conscious and unconscious worlds.
In addition, Lee Evans, coming out of retirement, will perform the poignant Monologue and a selection of Pinter’s most hilarious comedy sketches, including the sketch Apart From That, with Meera Syal.
From 19 November, close friend and long-term Pinter collaborator Penelope Wilton will make 12 special guest appearances from 19 November, performing the witty monologue Tess, written for her by Pinter.
The cast of Pinter Three includes Keith Allen (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Jamie Lloyd Company’s The Homecoming), multi-award-winning actor and comedian Lee Evans, and major comedy talents Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes), Tom Edden (One Man, Two Guvnors; Amadeus), Meera Syal (Annie, West End) and Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey).
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.
