Pinter at The Pinter: One For The Road / New World Order / Mountain Language / Ashes to Ashes

Audio described by VocalEyes.

The incendiary One for the Road is Pinter at his most terrifying: a ruthless government official interrogates a dissident and his family, but is the torturer more tortured than his victims?

The New World Order explores how the abuse of power is legitimised in the name of freedom and democracy, as two brutal interrogators prepare to inflict their terrible punishment on a blind-folded insurgent.

Pinter investigates the suppression of ideas and the supposed threat of non-conformity in Mountain Language: a group of captives attempt to find a voice when their shared language is banned by the state.

Ashes to Ashes, directed by award-winning actress and long-time Pinter collaborator, Lia Williams is a richly atmospheric and compelling play in which the dark nightmare of human atrocity infiltrates a couple’s living room.

The world premiere of Pinter’s newly-discovered satirical sketch, The Pres and an Officer, an anarchic attack on the Presidency, will be performed by a variety of surprise guest stars across the short run, directed by Jamie Lloyd.

Cast includes Paapa Essiedu, Kate O’Flynn, Jonjo O’Neill, Sir Antony Sher and Maggie Steed.

Please note that due to the turnaround from the Pinter 2 collection of plays presented in the afternoon, on this occasion it is not possible to offer a touch tour.
