Landscape / A Kind of Alaska / Monologue
på Harold Pinter Theatre
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. About the Pinter at the Pinter Season 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.
