Julian Sands (In Person) in A Celebration of Harold Pinter

Julian Sands in A Celebration of Harold Pinter
Directed by John Malkovich

With personal anecdotes and reflections drawn from their work together, Julian Sands (24, A Room with a View, The Killing Fields, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Impromptu, Leaving Las Vegas) combines Harold Pinter’s poems and political prose to create a very fresh and intimate insight into the Nobel laureate’s literary legacy.

In 2005 Mr. Sands was approached by the Nobel Prize winning playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a set of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. Working closely with Pinter, he was granted a rare insight into his personality, life, and work. This extraordinary collaboration evolved into a wonderfully humorous and fascinating solo show directed by John Malkovich titled, A Celebration of Harold Pinter.

This is an evening of Homeric theater with an extraordinary actor, great words, and an audience.  Devoid of pretension or glittery trappings, A Celebration of Harold Pinter gets to the soul of the man – poet, playwright, husband, political activist, Nobel winner, mortal. A Celebration of Harold Pinter was nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.

Post Show Meet and Greet/Conversation with Julian Sands: Be sure to stay after the show for a Q&A with Julian Sands as he shares his personal stories about the great playwright Harold Pinter
