The Jamie Lloyd Company presents The Room / Victoria Station / Family Voices, starring Jane Horrocks, Emma Naomi and Nicholas Woodeson 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 Harold Pinter on the 10th anniversary of his death, this trio of plays runs until 26 January 2019 and promises an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Pinter’s first play, The Room, features in a triple-bill directed by his colleague and friend, Patrick Marber. An all-too-familiar and alarmingly topical brand of English xenophobia runs through this darkly funny and unexpectedly peculiar play from 1957. In the hilarious Victoria Station and the reflective Family Voices, isolated voices attempt to communicate, but can we ever truly express the depths of our feelings?

Cast includes Jane Horrocks who is best-known for playing Bubble in BBC sitcom ‘Absolutely Fabulous’. She is joined by Rupert Graves, Emma Naomi, Luke Thallon and Nicholas Woodesen.
The Room is an experience, alternatingly between the mundane and the terrifying. Where the elusive landlord really lived, who the unexplained couple seeking lodgings are and why the lorry-driver husband remains mute for so long are questions that Pinter will never answer for you. Watch in awe as this play meets its powerful climax and stabs at your conscience.
Mr Lloyd Pack is the mini-cab drivers' controller and Mr Bates the bemused driver who communicate through radio dialogue. In this play, words and language fail to unite the characters in any form of understanding. The controller attempts to instruct the driver to pick up a client from Victoria Station, but Mr Bates declines to move, focusing on his current client who is apparently unmoving, perhaps even dead, in the back seat of the car.
Family Voices is about the delight of growing up and discovering yourself. A temporary exhilaration, of course, one that declines into regret as the years go by. The play exposes the story of a mother, son, and dead husband through a series of letters.
