Pinter in the Theatre

Pinter in the Theatre $14.99

Ian Smith

Published by Nick Hern Books

Published to mark his 75th year, this is the first book to focus on Pinter's work in the theatre

Eight actors and directors who have worked with Pinter in the theatre talk candidly about what it's like to appear in a Pinter play, to direct a Pinter play, to be directed by Pinter, to work alongside Pinter as an actor. The voices belong to directors Katie Mitchell and Sam Mendes, and to actors Barry Foster, Susan Engel, Roger Lloyd Pack, Roger Davidson, Douglas Hodge and Harry Burton

But before that come six interviews with Pinter himself - ranging from the earliest ever in 1960, when Pinter was 29, through the box-office successes of the seventies and the political plays of the eighties up to an extensive 1996 interview surveying the whole gamut of his work

Also included is an interview with Peter Hall, who has directed the premieres of several of Pinter's best-known plays including The Homecoming and Old Times

'Ian Smith paints a detailed picture of one of theatre's leading men in his collection of interviews, reviews and essays ... a fascinating insight' ~ Observer
