Description

_Moonlight

_by Harold Pinter

directed by Joy Zinoman

starring Ted van Griethuysen

Pinter’s poetic meditation on familial love, estrangement and mortality emerges as a heartbreakingly relevant tale of startling proportions. As a stern patriarch lays dying, his wife desperately tries to bring his two estranged sons to his bedside. Holding the two sides of the family together is the dead girl haunting all of their memories. Both comical and melancholy, Moonlight hovers in the space between life and death, family and isolation.
