This unique theatrical event will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 6 September 2018 to 23 February 2019, and promises an unforgettable celebration of the 'most influential, provocative and poetic dramatist of his generation' (The Guardian).


Q & A with members of the company on Tue 2 October.


Synopsis


Opening the Pinter at the Pinter season is a dynamic collection of Harold Pinter's most potent and dangerous political plays.


The incendiary One for The Road is Pinter at his most terrifying.


A ruthless government official interrogates a dissident and his family, but is the torturer more tortured than his victims?


The New World Order explores how the abuse of power is legitimised in the name of freedom and democracy, as two brutal interrogators prepare to inflict their terrible punishment on a blind-folded insurgent.


Pinter investigates the suppression of ideas and the supposed threat of non-conformity in Mountain Language: a group of captives attempt to find a voice when their shared language is banned by the state.


The evening culminates with Ashes to Ashes, a richly atmospheric and compelling play in which the dark nightmare of human atrocity infiltrates a couple's living room.


Directed by award-winning actress and long-time Pinter collaborator, Lia Williams.
