Jodie Comer’s extraordinary West End stage debut in Suzie Miller’s play Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter Theatre reveals not only strong vocal skill but an absolutely dazzling physical expressiveness and high-voltage emotional power.
Ruth Wilson delivers an acting masterclass in Jean Cocteau modernist classic adapted by Ivo van Hove.
Ivo van Hove puts aside his filmic style for an intimate monologue about the end of love. Starring Ruth Wilson, Jean Cocteau’s play The Human Voice, is a sympathetic study of a woman driven to distraction by a final phone call with her lover.
Jamie Lloyd’s clever and minimalistic production feels even sharper than its previous run at the Playhouse Theatre.
An evening spent in the company of David Suchet is an evening well spent as this fascinating and warm show proves.
This is wonderful. Sometimes a simple short performance can shake, rouse, even change you.
Ruth Wilson will star in Ivo van Hove’s adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s The Human Voice for three weeks only at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre from 17 March 2022.
Translating poetry to the stage can be challenging for both performer and audience, the importance of the language while alive and vivid on the page can feel verbose or intangible, even static, when read aloud.
The Jamie Lloyd Company has announced its next West End residency, this time at the Harold Pinter Theatre, where James McAvoy will reprise his Cyrano de Bergerac and, at last, Emilia Clarke will have her Covid-postponed West End debut in The Seagull.
In Richard Eyre’s briskly directed production Jennifer Saunders stands out. Her Arcati is draggled but not cartoonish: donnishly dishevelled, earnestly scholarly rather than exaggeratedly nuts.
Twin sisterhood, space, and the uncertain near future are at play in Amy Berryman’s debut play, Walden, which recently enjoyed a run on stage as part of the Re:Emerge season at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Now, it resurfaces in a filmed version to be released in cinemas on Wednesday.
Inspired by true events, Anna X is an electrifying play that is brought to life in an extremely well put together production.
Who are we and who are the people we meet? These rather profound questions have, in one way or another, been at the heart of Sonia Friedman’s brief Re:Emerge season at the Harold Pinter Theatre which concludes with Anna X.
Anna X by Joseph Charlton is a fresh, contemporary play set in New York that explores identity and acceptance in the modern age.
Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Royal & Derngate, Northampton have announcd that Ralph Fiennes’ world premiere stage adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets will transfer to London’s Harold Pinter Theatre for 36 performances only from 18 November to 18 December 2021.
Vibrant and thoughtful play J’Ouvert at the Harold Pinter Theatre is both a celebration of the carnival experience as well highlighting sexual politics and inclusivity versus cultural appropriation that can emerge in these settings.
J’Ouvert bursts onto the stage and it is the theatre experience I’ve been waiting to get back to. Theatre that can pack a powerful punch and do it while at the same time be entertaining.
Amy Berryman’s ambitious debut play Walden about siblings, climate change and space travel is full of ideas, but what happened to the emotions?
Amy Berryman’s Walden at the Harold Pinter Theatre is 90 minutes of proper stimulus, at times intensely moving, still haunting.
I really wanted to like Walden, it was my first trip to the theatre since they were last open in early December, but it just didn’t deliver the promised tension and drama.
