Pinter One: One for the Road / The New World Order / Mountain Language / Ashes to Ashes / The Pres and an Officer Tickets

The first production of Jamie Lloyd’s complete Pinter at the Pinter season (at the Harold Pinter Theatre) features three of the playwright’s darkest one-act plays. Tickets are now on sale to see One for the Road, New World Order, Mountain Language and Ashes to Ashes.

One for the Road was first seen in London in 1984, when Pinter directed the production which stared Alan Bates and Roger Lloyd-Pack. It tells the story of a tortured couple and their child who are held captive by an officer of a totalitarian regime.

New World Order is a short, ten-minute play in which two men discuss how they are going to torture the blindfolded man who sits before them. When it premiered, it was described by one critic as getting ‘closer to the nerve of torture than any play I know’ (Independent on Sunday).

Ashes to Ashes sees two characters, Devlin and Rebecca who are both in their 40s, talking on a summer evening. While the pair seem to be involved with each other, it is unclear if they are married, lovers, or if their relationship is something more sinister.

The plays will run at the Harold Pinter Theatre between 6th September and 20th October, with an official opening night on 28th September. Tickets are on sale now.

One for the Road and New World Order will be directed by Jamie Lloyd, while Lia Williams will direct Ashes to Ashes. Casting is to be announced.
