Seattle’s ACT (A Contemporary Theatre) invites you to return to their second round of openings for The Pinter Festival.The cast will take on Pinter’s Old Times and No Man’s Land. The shows will run from Saturday, August 18 through Sunday, August 26.
Old Times, Pinter’s haunting play, explores the unreliability of memory and the illusions which get through the day but haunt our nights. Old Times also looks the compelling need for psychological dominance and control and the fear of losing it. ACT last produced Old Times forty years ago.
No Man’s Land is a profound (and boozy) meditation on life and death and what may or may not have taken place between the cradle and the grave. This will be its first professional production in Seattle!
The Pinter Festival is the result of a multi-year series at ACT, curated and hosted by actor Frank Corrado, titled Pinter Fortnightly, which was presented through the Central Heating Lab. Originally conceived as an experiment to explore works of Harold Pinter with an intimate audience, the effort grew into a popular 26-event series over three years, with sold-out crowds, and a mass of official ‘Pinterian’ enthusiasts in Seattle.
Tickets range from $5.00 to $55.00, and are available online HERE or by phone at 206.292.7676.
