PINTER ONE - One For The Road / New World Order / Ashes to Ashes / The Pres and an Officer tickets
Opening the Pinter at the Pinter season is a dynamic collection of Harold Pinter’s most potent and dangerous political plays.
The incendiary One for The Road is Pinter at his most terrifying. A ruthless government official interrogates a dissident and his family, but is the torturer more tortured than his victims?
The New World Order explores how the abuse of power is legitimised in the name of freedom and democracy, as two brutal interrogators prepare to inflict their terrible punishment on a blind-folded insurgent. Pinter investigates the suppression of ideas and the supposed threat of non-conformity in Mountain Language: a group of captives attempt to find a voice when their shared language is banned by the state.
Ashes to Ashes, a richly atmospheric and compelling play in which the dark nightmare of human atrocity infiltrates a couple’s living room. Directed by award-winning actress and long-time Pinter collaborator, Lia Williams.
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, beginning with Jon Culshaw, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Cast includes PAAPA ESSIEDU, KATE O'FLYNN, JONJO O'NEILL, ANTONY SHER and MAGGIE STEED

This unique theatrical event will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 6 September 2018 to 23 February 2019, and promises an unforgettable celebration of the "most influential, provocative and poetic dramatist of his generation" (The Guardian).
Hard-hitting,exciting,frightening and extremely topical. All the performances are on the money.
It really was a bit of a harrowing evening and although I was very fimiliar with Pinter and the content of the Performance it failed to impress me , very disappointing actually . The performances were very good but the whole evening was very hard to admire and I was extremely glad when it ended . Several people left at the interval and one very disruptive audience member during the first part made it difficult to imerse in the performance .
I am not familiar with Pinter’s work so did some research before going to this performance. You don’t need to be an expert as Pinter’s work speaks of universal situations, even a Trump cameo! A thoroughly interesting and enjoyable experience.
