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.
In addition, long-term Pinter collaborator Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey) will make 12 special guest appearances to perform the witty monologue Tess - written specifically for her by Pinter - from the 19th November.
Cast includes Keith Allen, Lee Evans, Tamsin Greig, Meera Syal and – at select performances – Penelope Wilton.
