It's time for the Pinter at the Pinter season. The excellent Jamie Lloyd Company is at the helm, having gathered together a collection of remarkable actors and creatives and assembled a team of hugely skilled directors to deliver the season, and it's all taking place at the gorgeous Harold Pinter theatre in the West End.

Four of Harold Pinter’s most potent and dangerous political plays are beautifully directed by Jamie Lloyd, who knew the playwright and has produced many of his pieces. Welcome to One For the Road, The New World Order, Mountain Language and Ashes to Ashes.

One For the Road has been called an 'incendiary play', and what an excellent description that is. It showcases Pinter at his most terrifyingly prophetic. We just hope his view of the world never comes to pass. The story? When a cruel government official interrogates a dissident and his family, there's reason to believe the torturer actually feels more tortured than his victims.

The New World Order is another politically-focused piece, just as powerful and disturbing, this time looking at the abuse of power and how those who abuse it legitimise their actions in the name of freedom and democracy. When a pair of interrogators prepare to torment and abuse a blindfolded captive, even though their acts of violence are not carried out, merely spoken, the result is oppressive and menacing.

Mountain Language dates back to 1988 and, like One for the Road, exposes the extraordinary power and influence of language. It presents four main characters plus an anonymous prisoner , all of whom are presented as dramatically, starkly different from the officer, the sergeant and the guards at the prison.

Ashes to Ashes represents the culmination of the show, an atmospheric play where the deepest, darkest nightmares of human atrocity filter into a couple’s living room. This one is directed by the brilliant Lia Williams, like Jamie Lloyd a director who's very familiar with Pinter's work as well as a long-time collaborator with the playwright.
