About the showThe Jamie Lloyd Company presents a triple-bill of Harold Pinter short plays as part of their highly-anticipated Pinter at the Pinter Season, playing from September 2018 to February 2019 at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre. Patrick Marber directs The Room / Victoria Station / Family Voices featuring a star-studded cast including Jane Horrocks.
The Room was first published in 1957 and is Pinter’s first play. A real comedy of menace, the dark and slightly odd piece explores the all-too-familiar topic of English xenophobia. A thrilling play, it is often compared to The Birthday Party. Further plays on the bill are the hilarious Victoria Station and reflective Family Voices, which was originally conceived as a radio play, first airing in 1983 on BBC Radio 3.
Patrick Marber directs the strikingly relevant triple-bill, with extensive directing credits including Don Juan in Soho at Wyndham’s Theatre, Venus in Fur at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Travesties in the West End and on Broadway and Closer.
Cast members include Jane Horrocks, whose credits include the King Lear at the Old Vic and Instructions for a Correct Assembly at the Royal Court, as well as Emma Naomi, who was part of the ensemble in Don Juan in Soho. Nicholas Woodesen also stars, with extensive stage and screen credits including The Audience, Limehouse Golem, The Hustle and Friday Night Dinner, alongside Sherlock's Rupert Graves and Luke Thallon (The Inheritance).
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the playwright, the season features over fifteen one-act plays, along with stellar casts and creative teams, headed up by director Jamie Lloyd. The Room / Victoria Station / Family Voices runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 13 December 2018 to 26 January 2019, with a press night on 3 January 2019.
Who Should See It?Harold Pinter fans will be thrilled by this season, which stages some of the playwright’s lesser-known works as well as his finest plays. This is a great chance to see star-studded casts on stage.
