Pinter Six is an evening of social satire that chimes with our times, pairing the cutting Party Time with Pinter’s final play Celebration, both directed by Jamie Lloyd.
A scathing and bitterly amusing attack on the increasingly powerful and narcissistic super-rich, set against the backdrop of terrifying state oppression, Party Time will chime with modern audiences.
Celebration is an irresistible comedy about the vulgarity and ostentatious materialism of the nouveau riche, set in a fashionable London restaurant.
Please note there is a free Q&A with members of the company on Tuesday 8 January 2019.
John Simm (Doctor Who, Collateral), Gary Kemp (Assassin) and Ron Cook (Girl From The North Country) are reunited with Jamie Lloyd having appeared in his critically-acclaimed production of Pinter’s The Homecoming at Trafalgar Studios.
