Directed by PATRICK MARBER
Harold Pinter's first play, The Room, features in a triple-bill directed by Pinter's colleague and friend, Patrick Marber.
An all-too-familiar and frighteningly topical brand of English xenophobia runs through this darkly funny and unexpectedly odd play from 1957. In the hilarious Victoria Station and the reflective Family Voices, isolated voices attempt to communicate, but can we ever truly express the depths of our feeling?
Cast includes RUPERT GRAVES, JANE HORROCKS, EMMA NAOMI and NICHOLAS WOODESON.

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.
