Pinter Five sees Harold Pinter’s first play, The Room, feature in an exciting triple-bill, directed by Pinter’s colleague and friend, Patrick Marber.
An all-too-familiar and frighteningly topical brand of English xenophobia runs through The Room, a darkly funny and unexpectedly odd play from 1957.
This is followed by the hilarious Victoria Station and the reflective Family Voices, in which isolated voices attempt to communicate – but can we ever truly express the depths of our feeling?
Please note there is a free Q&A with members of the company on Monday 14 January 2019.
The cast of Pinter Five includes Rupert Graves (Sherlock, Krypton), Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous), Emma Naomi (House Girl), Luke Thallon (The Inheritance, Albion) and Nicholas Woodesen (Death Of A Salesman).
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.
