Two miniature comedic masterpieces from the 1960s make up Pinter Two, which explore secrets, lies and seduction.

The Lover and The Collection are both directed by major Pinter interpreter, Jamie Lloyd.

Playful and provocative, The Lover features a conventional, suburban couple in unconventional circumstances. The Collection, hailed as one of the outstanding plays of the 20th Century by Laurence Olivier, delves into the intriguing mystery of two London couples linked by sexual desire and a quest for supremacy.

The cast of Pinter Two will include David Suchet (Oppenheimer; Poirot), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake), Russell Tovey (The History Boys) and rising star John Macmillan (Chewing Gum).

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.
