- 70 year-old playwright to star on National stage
HAROLD PINTER takes to the National stage to perform in his own rarely seen sketches. This Friday and Monday, the 70 year-old playwright rejuvenates the pennings of decades of past.
A recent diagnosis of throat cancer will not prevent Pinter starring in his own short satire, Press Conference. Other actors on show in the likes of Trouble in the Works, Night and The Last To Go include Catherine McCormac, Andy de la Tour, and fellow writer-performer Patrick Marber.
For Pinter the stage trip marks a return to the early days of his theatre career. As a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he worked in repertory under the stage name of David Baron, supporting himself all the while as a dishwasher and door-to-door bookseller. This time the playwright's performance cashes in on his huge reputation as a writer.
