Pinter Four is a double bill of Moonlight and Night School, a searing selection of plays about dark memories long since buried.
The brutality of family life and the subjectivity of memory are explored in the emotionally raw and richly funny Moonlight, directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner, in which the past haunts the dark, lonely recesses of a dying father’s bedroom.
An East End criminal returns home from prison to find his room has been occupied by a mysterious woman with a secret. Set in the sweaty nightclubs and claustrophobic boarding houses of 1960s London, this is a rare opportunity to see the brilliantly witty and vivid Night School, directed by the inventive young director, Ed Stambollouian.
The cast of Pinter Four will be led by star of Netflix’s cult hit The End Of The F**king World, Jessica Barden. Jessica is joined by stars Bríd Brennan, Janie Dee, Robert Glenister, Isis Hainsworth, Peter Polycarpou, Dwane Walcott and Al Weaver. Talented young drummer Abbie Finn provides live onstage percussion in Night School.
