Pinter Two: The Lover / The Collection
- Harold Pinter Theatre
Two miniature comedic masterpieces from the 1960s that explore secrets, lies and seduction. 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 John Macmillan, Hayley Squires, David Suchet and Russell Tovey. A special pre-show charity performance of Pinter’s Nobel Lecture Art, Truth and Politics will be performed by Mark Rylance at 6pm Thursday 4 October in aid of Stop the War.
