Run At It Shouting today announces a live online rehearsed reading of Harold Pinter’s The Dwarfs adapted by Kerry Lee Crabbe in aid of The NIA Project - a Hackney-based charity committed to delivering cutting edge service to end violence against women and children - taking place via Zoom on 25 September at 7pm. Harry Burton directs Charlie MacGechan (Mark), Stacy Martin (Virginia), Lewis Rainer (Pete) and Ossian Perret (Len).
Adapted from Harold Pinter’s only novel, The Dwarfs follows three old school friends, Mark, Pete and Len who knock about the streets, pubs and cafes of East London arguing the toss about art, life and love. The fourth member of their tight-knit group is Virginia, a young teacher. As autumn draws in, each of the friends finds their perception of one another and themselves irrevocably changed.
Kerry Lee Crabbe’s adaptation of The Dwarfs was originally developed at the National Theatre Studio. It was screened on BBC Four in October 2002, receiving its stage première at the Tricycle Theatre in April 2003.
