About the Playwright: Harold PinterAbout the Playwright: Harold Pinter
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Sep 29, 2015

Harold Pinter was born in Hackney, in London's East End, in October of 1930. An only child, he was born to Jewish parents of very moderate means; his father, a tailor, and his mother, a homemaker, were first-generation descendants of Eastern European immigrants. Like many of his contemporaries, Pinter's childhood was shaped by the onslaught of World War II; at the age of nine, he was evacuated from London through Operation Pied Piper and resettled in a town in Cornwall. The sense of isolation he felt in Cornwall would come to influence his work, as would the changed London to which he returned during the Blitz, where he was witness to, as his 2008 Guardianobituary put it, 'the dramatic nature of wartime life - the palpable fear, the sexual desperation, the genuine sense that everything could end tomorrow.'

by Matt Tamanini - Sep 28, 2015

Fail better.” That sentiment is alive and well in one of Atlanta's newest theatre groups, The Seedling Project. The eight person collective is defying the conventional theatre format in an effort to break free of the economic restrictions that most companies face as day-to-day realities. (more...)
