The Collection & A Kind of Alaska: Two Plays by Harold Pinter

Atlantic eagerly returns to the work of Harold Pinter, several seasons after its acclaimed production of his first and last plays, The Room and Celebration. Here again, the plays are separated chronologically by twenty years; both, however, are steeped in the author’s signature humor, mystery and psychological tension.



In The Collection (1962),a four am phone call and a surprise visitor set off a series of conversations about potential infidelities among two couples. And a middle-aged woman who has been asleep in a hospital room awakens after thirty years and must reorient herself to a greatly changed world in A Kind of Alaska (1982), which was inspired by the work of Oliver Sacks in his seminal book, Awakenings.
