The Jamie Lloyd Company presents a complete season of Harold Pinter's one-act plays to celebrate the legacy of the Nobel Prize-winning British writer on the 10th anniversary of his death.
Landscape and A Kind of Alaska, directed by Jamie Lloyd, are spellbinding evocations of loneliness, isolation and the strange mists of time.
Landscape is a minimalist marvel: a woman is locked in a beautiful memory and her husband demands to be heard. In A Kind of Alaska, Deborah awakes from a twenty-nine-year sleep and is suspended between the conscious and unconscious worlds.
Lee Evans will perform the poignant Monologue and a selection of Pinter’s most hilarious comedy sketches, including the sketch Apart From That, with Meera Syal.
Close friend and long-term Pinter collaborator, Penelope Wilton will make 12 special guest appearances from 19 November, performing the witty monologue Tess, written for her by Pinter.
Greig shows nothing is now beyond her range while Evans’s physical comedy is a delight as this short-drama season highlights Pinter’s fascination with marital solitude
