Pinter 6: Party Time/Celebration Tickets
Keep me updated
We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
A scathing and bitterly amusing attack on the increasingly powerful and narcissistic super-rich, set against the backdrop of terrifying state oppression, the highly pertinent Party Time is paired with Harold Pinter’s final play, Celebration.
Celebration is an irresistible comedy about the vulgarity and ostentatious materialism of the nouveau riche, set in a fashionable London restaurant. An evening of social satire that chimes with our times, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Cast includes Celia Imrie, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Abraham Popoola

London Theatre Review: Pinter 6 – Party Time/Celebration at the Harold Pinter Theatre
If you have not yet seen a Harold Pinter play live on stage, then Party Time and Celebration offer a spectacular place to start. The two pieces, which were written eight years apart from each other (1991 and 1999), seem like two peas in a pod, with both exploring the indifference, ignorance, altruistic consumerism, and narcissism of the high bourgeoisie society. Jamie Lloyd, who spearheaded the Pinter at the Pinter season with Lady Antonia Fraser and who is also behind the director's helm for this double bill, has brought a visually simplistic yet refined rendition that remains tasteful amidst the characters' incredibly bombastic conversations and shocking commentaries that are at times as bitter as the red wine they so desperately quaff.

20 Pinter Plays You've Probably Never Seen Onstage Pt. 1
Harold Pinter was one of the most important and influential playwrights of our time, but some of his works you might have never seen played out on the stage. His plays can be categorised into three distinct styles: Comedies of Menace (1957-1968) featuring absurdist theatre, Memory Plays (1968-1982) that toy with elements of memory and time, and Overtly Political (1982-2000). We have ranked the 20 Harold Pinter plays you’ve probably never seen, counting down from number 20.
