Pinter at the Pinter
Landscape / A Kind of Alaska / Monologue

25th October 2018 - 8th December 2018

Harold Pinter Theatre

Directed by JAMIE LLOYD

Landscape and A Kind of Alaska, directed by Jamie Lloyd, are spellbinding evocations of loneliness, isolation and the strange mists of time.

Landscape is a minimalist marvel: a woman is locked in a beautiful memory and her husband demands to be heard. In A Kind of Alaska, Deborah awakes from a twenty-nine-year sleep and is suspended between the conscious and unconscious worlds.

Lee Evans will perform the poignant Monologue and a selection of Pinter's most hilarious comedy sketches, including the sketch Apart From That, with Meera Syal.

In addition, long-term Pinter collaborator Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey) will make 12 special guest appearances to perform the witty monologue Tess - written specifically for her by Pinter - from the 19th November.

Cast includes KEITH ALLEN, LEE EVANS, TAMSIN GREIG, MEERA SYAL and – at select performances – PENELOPE WILTON.



About the PINTER AT THE PINTER season

"A MAMMOTH AND UNPRECEDENTED THEATRICAL VENTURE."
- The Guardian

The Jamie Lloyd Company presents an extraordinary season of Harold Pinter's one-act plays on the tenth anniversary of the Nobel Prize winner's death, performed in the theatre that bears his name.

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 before been performed together in a season of this kind.

The twenty plays will be presented in repertoire by a company of world class creatives, many of whom were Harold Pinter's friends and collaborators. The cast includes Keith Allen, Jessica Barden, Ron Cook, Phil Davies, Danny Dyer, Paapa Essiedu, Lee Evans, Martin Freeman, Rupert Graves, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks, Celia Imrie, Gary Kemp, John Macmillan, Emma Naomi, Tracy Ann Oberman, Kate O'Flynn, Jonjo O'Neill, Abraham Popoola, Sir Antony Sher, John Simm, Hayley Squires, Maggie Steed, David Suchet, Meera Syal, Luke Thallon, Russell Tovey, Penelope Wilton and Nicholas Woodeson, with further casting to follow.

Direction is by Jamie Lloyd, Patrick Marber, Ed Stambollouian, Lyndsey Turner and Lia Williams. Season design is by Soutra Gilmour.

Alongside famous pieces such as One for the Road, The Dumb Waiter, The Lover and The Collection, a special pre-show charity performance of Pinter's Nobel Lecture Art, Truth and Politics will be performed by Mark Rylance in aid of Stop the War, whilst long-term Pinter collaborator Penelope Wilton makes 12 guest appearances to perform the witty monologue Tess during performances of Landscape and A Kind of Alaska.

The World Premiere production of Pinter's newly-discovered satirical sketch, The Pres and an Officer, an anarchic attack on the Presidency, will be performed alongside One for the Road, The New World Order, Mountain Language, and Ashes to Ashes with the role of the President played by a variety of surprise guest stars across the short run.

Special rehearsed readings of Tea Party, The Basement and Silence will complete the season.
