Spanning the length of his career, a bunch of world-class actors are set to bring Harold Pinter's one-act plays to dazzling life. The event takes place from autumn 2018 to late February 2019, and it's called the Pinter at the Pinter season. Throughout the season Pinter fans will be treated to performances by many of the great man's close friends, including Danny Dyer, Martin Freeman, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks, Celia Imrie, Emma Naomi, Tracy Ann Oberman, David Suchet and Nicholas Woodeson.
The plays are directed by a host of superstar directors, too: Jamie Lloyd himself plus Patrick Marber, Ed Stambollouian, Lyndsey Turner and Lia Williams.
Party Time, written in the early 1990s, is bitterly funny and painfully scathing. It mercilessly attacks the powerful and narcissistic super-rich, the one percent, against a background of a terrifying state where oppression is the name of the game. In the meantime, outdoors, a mysterious and sinister military force protects the rich from the horrors of poverty, vulgarity and squalor taking place outside... As you can imagine, with worldwide protests about global inequality taking place regularly, it's equally relevant today. It demonstrates in no uncertain terms how brutality is more or less inevitable in a world where those in power are completely and utterly convinced that they are right.
Celebration is a wickedly good comedy about the vulgarity and ostentatious materialism of the nouveau riche, dating back to the year 2000. Like many of Pinter's plays it's set in London, this time in a posh restaurant, beautifully directed by Jamie Lloyd. The plot revolves around three couples dining there, and the cast includes Celia Imrie, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Abraham Popoola.
Who is this show for?
Pinter's work is written with adults in mind, complicated and intelligent pieces of work that are not suited to children. It's probably best for mature over 16s upwards.
