    Moonlight / Night School Tickets

    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 dates: 08 Dec 2018 - 08 Dec 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 started to make connections, I was much happier with it. Still, it wasn't until I looked it up online afterwards that I realised that the girl in the red coat was the daughter - v obscure. Basically, a man lies dying, and none of his children have come to visit - the play is an examination of the ruins of a family. But it could be clearer. We congregated in the crowded lobby to agree on how confused we were, then headed back in for Night School - happily, the Royal Circle is just the next level up. This was much more successful - still with unusual staging, it made more sense than the first, as the story of a criminal, in and out of prison, who returns to his - comical - aunts' house to discover they've rented out his room to a very pretty young schoolteacher. Who goes to night school three nights a week. Or - does she? Very witty, I think the best line in it has to be when he's trying to compliment her, saying "You have Northern eyes - they're full of soot". Still, the mood tenses beautifully when it needs to, and the whole has a musical backdrop provided by a lady on the drums. Very, very watchable.

    It's Pinter! I thought the cast were good but it was a bit confusing, especially Moonlight where two different sets of action took place on the same set. However, it was clever how this was transformed for the second play with the whole of the stage used.

    This was a two hander featuring Janie Dee and Robert Glenister amongst others. The first production Moonlight was quite sombre in mood and of course what with it being Pinter we found it very hard to know exactly what it was about!! The second play was more light hearted in manner and was my preference out of the two as it did make slightly more sense! A good choice of casting here for this production.
