Harold Pinter Theatre

Directed by JAMIE LLOYD

Two miniature comedic masterpieces from the 1960s that explore secrets, lies and seduction.

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.

Cast includes JOHN MACMILLAN, HAYLEY SQUIRES, DAVID SUCHET and RUSSELL TOVEY.

A special pre-show charity performance of Pinter’s Nobel Lecture Art, Truth and Politics will be performed by Mark Rylance at 6.00pm Thursday 4th October in aid of Stop the War.



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.
