Quotes & Highlights

“[Perloff has] produced the most compelling Pinter I’ve seen anywhere, including London.” —San Francisco Examiner

Description

A.C.T. celebrates Nobel Prize–winning playwright Harold Pinter’s legacy with his most sexually provocative play. A long-absent son and his attractive wife, Ruth, return to his contentious childhood home in London’s East End. Caught in a grueling power struggle, father and sons vie for Ruth’s attention and affection with outrageous consequences in a play that changed the face of 20th-century drama. Longtime Pinter collaborator and A.C.T. Artistic Director Carey Perloff directs this brilliant classic featuring René Augesen, who celebrates her tenth-anniversary season as part of the A.C.T. core acting company.
