Pinter at the Pinter season tickets are now available! Pinter 1 tickets are only available through 20 October.

The Harold Pinter Season starts with a triple bill of some of Harold Pinter’s most overtly and perhaps dangerously political plays directed by Jamie Lloyd.

The inflammatory One for The Road is some of Pinter’s most intensely terrifying work. Taking place in one room over the course of one day a merciless government official interrogates a dissident and his family, but that’s not the whole story.

The New World Order, Harold Pinter’s shortest play questions the lengths we are willing to go to in the name of freedom and democracy as we are presented with a blind-folded insurgent and two ruthless interrogators.

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

Ashes to Ashes is directed by award-winning actress and longtime Pinter collaborator Lia Williams. This highly charged play brings the dark terror and psychological torment of a woman’s past into her present.

The world premiere of Pinter’s newly-discovered satirical sketch, The Pres and an Officer, an anarchic attack on the Presidency, will be performed by a variety of surprise guest stars across the short run, directed by Jamie Lloyd.

Cast includes:  Paapa EssieduKate O’Flynn, Jonjo O’Neill, Anthony Sher, and Maggie Steed.

Heinz Jungbluth28th October

Excellent plays, very good theatre. Play after the interval seemed thematically somewhat disconnected to plays before the interval.

Stephanie Ridley21st October

Powerful, devastating, hilarious!

Annika Graham21st October

Excellent acting. However, not being familiar with Pinter, I did not fully appreciate the performances until I had read more about them afterwards. I was very much inspired to find out more. Perhaps a few explanatory notes could be included in program.

Fraser Wood21st October

As a Pinter newbie I wasn’t sure what to expect but was pleasantly or unpleasantly surprised by a gripping and tense series of narratives which held me in thrall. Pinter’s script a real ambiguous treat.

Alexander Waksman21st October

Dreadful. Hacky expositional writing, gratuitous rape references that trivialised rather than dealt with the subject matter, and characters that were all one note. Some of the guffawing audience members enjoyed the Trump skit, which was particularly obvious. Left at the interval.

Themis Themistocleous21st October

Well acted but confusing and boring. Much better shows to chose from.

Juliette EMERY21st October

Terrific. So much resonance and significance.

alessandra binucci21st October

The production is brilliant and the whole cast is amazing. The play was a disturbing one, so modern.

Marlies Hensel20th October

Fantastic! Stellar actors who make the concise writings of Pinter shine. I think he would be pleased. This is a must for theatre lovers.

G Savona19th October

Not a patch on the original productions. Excessive directorial intervention. Underprojection from several cast members. Music HP would have hated.

Ade Solanke19th October

One for The Road and Mountain Language were superb - writing, acting and directing all first class. Anthony Sher was absolutely riveting; Paapa's presence and reactions equally powerful. I came out profoundly disturbed - and glad to be reminded of the intense suffering political regimes inflict here and elsewhere. Thank you.

Lynne Overend19th October

Harrowingly good. Revelation - to see short plays by Pinter. Maggie Steed was brilliant. Glad Antonio Frazer discovered the Pres and the Officer - it was so on point.
