Pinter in the Theatre

£5.99

Product description

Book is in excellent condition with unclipped dust jacket. Tightly bound, clean and crisp-like new.

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. 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. Pinter in the Theatre explores Pinter's work as an actor and a director as well as playwright. New generations of teachers and students want to investigate the practical processes of theatre, rather than the once fashionable critical and analytical theories. This is their book!
