David Morrissey, Mathew Horne, Claudie Blakely and Elliot Barnes-Worrell star in Harold Pinter plays

Harold Pinter stories head back to the theatre…

Full casting has been announced for The Lover / The Collection, a double bill of two works from one of the most influential British dramatists of the last century, Harold Pinter.  The plays which go into rehearsal this week, will run at the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal Bath from 22 March to 20 April 2024.

As previously announced, David Morrissey will lead the cast. He will be joined by Mathew Horne, Claudie Blakley and Elliot Barnes-Worrell.

These two plays showcase Pinter’s unique and darkly comic perception of love, marriage and relationships. The Lover is a quirky, tense and intriguing glimpse at the private intricacies of modern marriage; The Collection, a comic play of suspense and sexual jealousy between two couples, sparked by an anonymous phonecall in the dead of night…

Director Lindsay Posner returns to the Ustinov Studio fresh from his widely acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? One of the UK’s most accomplished directors, his recent productions in Bath and for the West End include Noises Off, God of Carnage, Stone in his Pockets, She Stoops To Conquer and Hay Fever.
