Pinter: In Other Rooms

The production consists of eight seldom-performed short plays by Harold Pinter. It is performed as an integrated evening devised by Robert Gordon rather than as a revue of plays, the performance will locate audiences in the world of the plays, transforming party venues into secret places of interrogation and torture or intimate spaces that reveal conversations that are by turns, funny, sinister, absurd, and shocking.

The performance will introduce significant aspects of Pinter’s work that up to now have been familiar chiefly to Pinter scholars, revealing a number of masterpieces (Party Time, Victoria Station, The Examination, Night) that have rarely been performed outside the university circuit and presenting a number of later works seldom seen anywhere outside London.

Performed by Pinter Centre for Research in Performance and Creative Writing at the University of London, designed by Andrea Cusumano, produced by Neil Franklin, directed by Robert Gordon and David Peimer.

The total duration is 2 hours and 20 minutes including breaks.

There will be three performances, on three consecutive evenings of 22, 23, and 24 September 2011, at 7 pm. They will be held in Narodni dom Maribor, Kneza Koclja 9.
