Two miniature comedic masterpieces from the 1960s, The Lover and The Collection, which explore secrets, lies and seduction, are directed by “major Pinter interpreter” (Financial Times), Jamie Lloyd.
Playful and provocative, The Lover features a conventional, suburban couple in unconventional circumstances. The Collection, hailed as one of the outstanding plays of the 20th Century by Laurence Olivier, delves into the intriguing mystery of two London couples linked by sexual desire and a quest for supremacy.
Cast includes David Suchet and John Macmillan (The Homecoming).
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. 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).
Perfect performances by the entire Cast and Crew; Pinter's art comes alive moment one!
An absolutely amazing and mesmerizing play! A great cast, in a wonderful masterpiece by Pinter. Must see!
Wonderful production by Ben Lloyd and team. We thoroughly enjoyed the rhythmic role-play of The Lovers. Simply set effectively with cast making every use of each small prop. Choreography exquisite and timing spot on. Wonderful. Even darker still The Collection was an absolute triumph. The duality of scene and delivery of cast an absolute joy. Menacing, mincing, funny and fabulous. We had an astounding night. Thanks!
