Party Time / Celebration Harold Pinter Theatre, 6 Panton Street, London, SW1Y 4DN
ABOUT Pinter Six
The Jamie Lloyd Company presents Party Time / Celebration as part of its extraordinary season of one-act plays by Harold Pinter at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Pinter at the Pinter is an unparalleled event featuring the short plays written by the greatest British playwright of the 20th Century, in the theatre that bears his name. They have never been performed together in a season of this kind. Each play runs for a limited number of performances.
Party Time / Celebration is booking from 20 December 2018 until 26 January 2019 at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
A scathing and bitterly amusing attack on the increasingly powerful and narcissistic super-rich, set against the backdrop of terrifying state oppression, the highly pertinent Party Time is paired with Harold Pinter’s final play, Celebration.
Celebration is an irresistible comedy about the vulgarity and ostentatious materialism of the nouveau riche, set in a fashionable London restaurant. An evening of social satire that chimes with our times, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
WHO’S IN IT? PARTY TIME / CELEBRATION CAST
