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.
Close friend and long-term Pinter collaborator Penelope Wilton also makes a special guest appearance, 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.
