Landscape / A Kind of Alaska / Monologue - Directed by Jamie Lloyd
Pinter Three season runs 25 October – 8 December
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. In Monologue a man sits alone addressing an absent friend, their close relationship having been pulled apart many years ago.
Cast includes Keith Allen, Tom Edden, Lee Evans, Tamsin Greig and Meera Syal

Moonlight - Directed Lyndsey Turner
Night School - Directed by Ed Stambollouian
Pinter Four season runs 1 November- 8 December
The brutality of family life and the subjectivity of memory are explored in the emotionally raw and richly funny Moonlight, directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner, in which the past haunts the dark, lonely recesses of a dying father’s bedroom.
An East End criminal returns home from prison to find his room has been occupied by a mysterious woman with a secret. Set in the sweaty nightclubs and claustrophobic boarding houses of 1960s London, this is a rare opportunity to see the brilliantly witty and vivid Night School, directed by the inventive young director, Ed Stambollouian.
Cast includes Robert Glenister, Bríd Brennan, Janie Dee, Isis Hainsworth,
Peter Polycarpou, Dwane Walcott and Al Weaver in Moonlight
