Description

First presented by the Royal Court Theatre in London in September of 1996, Ashes to Ashes is a triumph of power and concision. In the living room of a pleasant house in a university town outside of London, Devlin, threatened by his wife Rebecca's recollections of an abusive ex-lover, questions her relentlessly in his need for a single truth. In her seamless blending of what she knows of violence with the wider violence of the world, Rebecca reveals an eerie communion with the dead victims of unnamed political barbarities.

About Harold Pinter

Harold Pinter wurde 1930 in London geboren. Er war nach seiner Ausbildung an der Royal Academy of Dramatic Art bis 1957 Schauspieler an diversen Provinzbühnen. Die Uraufführung seines ersten abendfüllenden Stücks 'Die Geburtstagsfeier' stieß 1958 bei der englischen Kritik auf Unverständnis; 1960 etablierte ihn schließlich 'Der Hausmeister' als einen der meistgespielten und einflussreichsten britischen Dramatiker.
Neben Stücken hat er Drehbücher (u.a. für Regisseure wie Joseph Losey, Elia Kazan, Robert Altman, Volker Schlöndorff und Paul Schrader) geschrieben, Hör- und Fernsehspiele sowie den Roman 'Die Zwerge', Regie geführt und als Schauspieler in Film und Theater gearbeitet.
Harold Pinter erhielt den Literatur-Nobelpreis 2005.
