In Celebration of Harold Pinter: A Kind of Alaska and A Slight Ache
Gate, Notting Hill
Since he is one of their neighbours, it is appropriate that the Gate has launched the first celebration of Harold Pinter's award as Nobel Literature Laureate.
This is not the biggest of celebrations, consisting of a well-matched pair of plays lasting a couple of hours between them. Its strength is in meticulous direction from youthful directors Thea Sharrock and Claire Lovett, supported by strong acting, especially in the first piece.
