Moonlight / Night School Tickets

Harold Pinter Theatre

Olivier Award-winning director Lyndsey Turner teams up with newcomer Ed Stambollouian to direct a double-bill of Harold Pinter’s rarely-staged plays Moonlight / Night School as part of a wider Pinter at the Pinter Season. Presented by The Jamie Lloyd Company, the season celebrates the 10th anniversary of the acclaimed playwright’s death.

The Jamie Lloyd Company returns to the West End for a five-month-long residency at the Harold Pinter Theatre, presenting a limited season that celebrates the 10th anniversary of the British playwright Harold Pinter. This commemoration stages Pinter’s lesser-known, one-act plays in a series of double bills from September 2018 to February 2019.

Moonlight / Night School is presented as a thrilling double-bill of atmospheric and witty plays. In Moonlight, Andy is on his deathbed whilst his family discuss the troubled relationships that they’ve had with him. In Night School, a inhabitant of the East End’s underworld returns to his bedsit to find it occupied by a mysterious woman harbouring a deadly secret.

Olivier Award-winning director Lyndsey Turner directs Moonlight, with up-and-comer Ed Stambollouian leading Night School. Stambollouian has recently worked as an associate director for The Jamie Lloyd Company, whilst Turner’s most recent credits include Girls & Boys at the Royal Court, which later transferred to Broadway, as well as productions at the Donmar Warehouse, Gate Theatre and in the West End.

Casting for Moonlight / Night School includes Jessica Barden, whose screen credits include hit Channel 4 series The End of the F***ing World and theatre credits include Blasted and Jerusalem.

A one-of-a-kind theatrical event that showcases the ever-relevant work of one of Britain’s greatest writers, the celebratory season stages a variety of his lesser-known works amongst his finest short plays. Moonlight / Night School is the fourth double-bill to appear in the season, which features star-studded casts and stellar creative teams.

An unforgettable journey through his finest works, Moonlight / Night School contrasts a compelling piece about loneliness with a sharp, witty comedy. The production runs at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre from 1 November to 8 December 2018, with a press night on 16 November 2018.

Performance date: 20 November 2018

We started with Moonlight - a sombre piece, apparently three separate scenarios in play, with characters who may or may not have been connected. And afterwards, not a single one of my group could properly figure out what it was about: although when I Read more
