The Jamie Lloyd Company presents Moonlight / Night School at the Harold Pinter Theatre as part of its complete season of one-act plays by the Nobel Prize-winning British writer Harold Pinter. Celebrating the legacy of the “most influential, provocative and poetic dramatist of his generation” (The Guardian) on the 10th anniversary of his death, this duo of plays runs from 1 November 2018 until 8 December 2018 and promises an unforgettable theatrical experience.
The emotionally raw and richly funny Moonlight, directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner, focuses on the brutality of family life and the subjectivity of memory as the past haunts the dark, lonely recesses of a dying father’s bedroom.
The brilliantly witty and vivid Night School is directed by the inventive young director, Ed Stambollouian. Set in the sweaty nightclubs and claustrophobic boarding houses of 1960s London, Night School focuses on the story of an East End criminal who returns home from prison to find that his room has been occupied by a mysterious woman with a secret.
Free Q&A with members of the Company: Tue 20 November 2018.
Cast includes Jessica Barden (The End of the F***ing World), Bríd Brennan, Janie Dee, Robert Glenister, Isis Hainsworth, Peter Polycarpou, Dwane Walcott and Al Weaver.
About the Pinter at the Pinter season:
The Jamie Lloyd Company presents a complete season of Harold Pinter's one-act plays to celebrate the legacy of the Nobel Prize-winning British writer on the 10th anniversary of his death. This unique theatrical event will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 6 September 2018 to 23 February 2019, and promises an unforgettable celebration of the "most influential, provocative and poetic dramatist of his generation" (The Guardian).
Dominated by the fear of dying and estrangement from family, Moonlight tells the story of Andy, who is bedridden, and visited by his divided sons and his dead daughter, Bridget. Each of the characters desperately hungers for meaningful communication between both the living and the dead.
Walter, an East End villain, returns home from a short prison sentence to find Sally in his room. His aunts have let it to her in his absence. To impress his new roommate, he pretends to be a big-time “gun man”. But, Sally is also pretending, she’s not really a language student at night nor a PE teacher by the day, she’s actually a prostitute.
