Landscape / A Kind of Alaska Tickets

Tamsin Greig stars in a compelling double-bill of Harold Pinter’s short plays Landscape / A Kind of Alaska. Playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre as part of The Jamie Lloyd Company’s residency, the duo of productions address the ever-increasing worries of loneliness and isolation within the strange constraints of time.

Ten years ago, legendary playwright Harold Pinter passed away, leaving an unparalleled legacy of theatre behind him. To commemorate his death, The Jamie Lloyd Company is producing a five-month-long season of Pinter’s finest one-act plays in a series of double bills at the Harold Pinter Theatre. This unique season runs from September 2018 to February 2019.

Directed by Jamie Lloyd, Landscape / A Kind of Alaska are a double-bill of compelling works that share themes of loneliness and isolation. Landscape focuses on communication issues between a couple, Beth and Duff. With different views on their relationship, this slightly odd short play follows this couple who clearly are not listening to each other.

A Kind of Alaska depicts Deborah, a woman who has just awaken from a 29-year-long sleep. Having been asleep since she was 16 years old, Deborah must come to terms with her ageing and the change that has occurred in the world since then.

Tamsin Greig stars in this double bill, after appearing as the cross-gendered Malvolia in Twelfth Night at the National Theatre and taking over a role last-minute in James Graham’s Labour of Love at the Noel Coward Theatre. Greig is also well-known for her television roles in Episodes, Friday Night Dinner and Black Books. Casting also includes Keith Allen (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Marcella), comedian Lee Evans, (The Producers, Endgame) and Meera Syal (Annie, Romeo and Juliet).

A fantastic opportunity to catch two rarely-produced plays by one of Britain’s most renowned modern playwrights, Landscape / A Kind of Alaska are a thrilling duo of plays that explore ever-growing themes of loneliness and time. The production runs at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre from 25 October to 8 December 2018, with a press night on 15 November 2018.
