PINTER THREE - Landscape / A Kind of Alaska / Monologue tickets
Gain priority booking access to BETRAYAL when booking this show - go to the Good To Know section below for details.
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.
Cast includes Keith Allen, Lee Evans, Tamsin Greig and Meera Syal
Excellent show, everyone was superb and Lee Evans was brilliant, he made the audience laugh just by being on stage. A truly funny guy. Wish he was still doing stand up.
worst show we have ever seen but my fault should of looked into this a bit further was lee evans that attracted us but if your a pinter fan it might be for you
Wow - just wow! Tamsin was absolutely fabulous in both Landscape and A Kind Of Alaska. They were all good, but the way Tamsin acted was (as I first wrote in this review) just wow! Pinter Three is not a comedy show. Sure, some of the shorter sketches are. But all have a deeper meaning. I see some reviewers complain that they found it too slow. They seem to be expecting Friday night comedy. Then they have come to the wrong show. If you have the chance to go see this before it ends, definitely go for it!!
Excellent production. Stunning performances from all cast but especially Tamsin Greig.
well well well played
I brought my family with me and although they were slightly bemused at some of the acts we all loved the different characters and actors.
Wow! Some amazing performances with some poignant, funny and heartbreaking moments in each performance. Hampered only by some odd people thinking it was ok to take pictures of the performers on stage and who took offence and insulted me when I told them to stop 🤷🏻♀️
Very engaging, very emotionally draining but very entertaining . Brilliant cast with Lee Evans who was exceptional . Has rekindled my interest in Pinter as a writer .
This was just awful So dated Not relevant What a waste of my time
This was our first visit to the theatre for a long time and we had an amazing experience. The cast were all excellent.....what an experience! Lee Evans was as always hilarious what a talent he is. Loved it all and great introduction to Pinter.
Very good, very entertaining and skeches where well performed
Very good I think Lee Evans made it enjoyable
All my interest was Lee and he never disappoints me. Other episodes were so difficult to understand.
Play was ok I think the play sold tickets because of the people that appeared in the play
Excellent evening a full on roller coasta ride cast we're brilliant Keith allen good as ever all the cast we're great it's a shame the rest of the uk can't see it. We need more regional theatre like this agath christe good but that's all we seem to get tag keep up the good work
Strong and moving performance from Tasmin Greig. All were excellent with a surprisingly good Lee Evans.
Found the play painfully slow and depressing. Penelope Wilton, Tamsin Greig and Meera Syal were very good but could've done with seeing more of Lee Evans in the play as he was brilliant and brought much needed humour to the play. While sat in the auditorium heard many people say throughout the evening that they wished Mr Evans would come out of retirement and couldn't agree more.
Pinter is not for everyone, this notebook style show took a little getting used to however the focus on detail and observations of our idiosyncrasies is so different and refreshing to see performed up close, our innermost thought process and behaviours are exposed and magnified beautifully. We were 7 rows back and whilst I was engrossed my wife was a little uncomfortable as if she were invading the characters space!
Went with my family to see this show as we all are big fans of Lee Evans. There were about 12 different sketches, all skillfully acted but the script let it down. The sketches that Lee Evans was in had humour but we felt these better sketches were too short. Other longer sketches were hard to follow and pretty boring.
Really enjoyed the show Lee Evans is mesmerising as per usual. He doesn’t even have to try to be funny! Rest of cast also very good would highly recommend
An absorbing evening of rarely performed work. Landscape and A Kind of Alaska are substantial plays, and the shorter pieces well worth seeing. Acting and production are up to very good NT and RSC standards. And the programme only costs £1! This is very enterprising project for a commercial production company.
Great. Intense. Funny. Slow start and overlong Kind of Alaska finish
Loved the performance. A really enjoyable evening out. Found it very engaging and absolutely not depressing.
An entertaining, well-acted and discussion-provoking evening.
An excellent, entertaining evening. Brilliant acting and wonderful ad libs. A treat, thank you.
I was very much looking forward to seeing one of my favourite playwright’s pieces and introducing it to my friend. However the stage failed to work from the start. Then we had one of the directors coming on with the programme announcing which piece was next as the actors assembled to perform......it was just so unprofessional and I left so dissapointed.
Things go wrong in Theatre all the time but because ppl who work in theatre know this they are professionals and cover up and carry on. Something happened to the set last night (set designer - you had one job! ?) - Jamie Lloyd came out on stage and mumbled and joked about technical difficulties (holding a piece of paper like he didn’t know the play) after 40 odd minutes. Then the actors proceeded to perform - directing themselves almost. It was like having racehorses entering a donkey derby at a school fete. Wonderful talent in in a mess. I’ve seen a rehearsal performance where the set caught fire for real. The director came on explained what was going to happen next, then joked, we laughed and the show carried on. However, last night was a West End show where ppl spend a lot of money for a ticket - bizarre behaviour by Jamie Lloyd.
Wasn’t sure what to expect -the short pieces took a while to register and being very much of their time I found some not convincing ( my lack of imagination!) -the final piece was very moving and deeply sad . What a mixed bag and great viewing!
