Description

A restaurant. Two curved banquettes. It's a celebration. Violent, wildly funny, Harold Pinter's new play displays a vivid zest for life.

In The Room, Harold Pinter's first play, he reveals himself as already in full control of his unique ability to make dramatic poetry of the banalities of everyday speech and the precision with which it defines character.

Harold Pinter's latest play, Celebration, and his first play, The Room directed by the author himself, premiered as a double-bill at London's Almeida Theatre in March 2000.
