Harold Pinter 'to give up writing plays'

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Front Row, Harold Pinter (74-years-old) has said that he is to give up writing plays and focus on other forms of writing.

He said: "I think I've stopped writing plays now, but I haven't stopped writing poems." "I think I've written 29 plays. I think it's enough for me. I think I've found other forms now."

He told Front Row presenter Mark Lawson that his energies were "going in different directions, certainly into poetry". "But also, as I think you know, over the last few years I've made a number of political speeches at various locations and ceremonies," he said. "I'm using a lot of energy more specifically about political states of affairs, which I think are very worrying as things stand."
