The Lover / The Collection Tickets
David Suchet stars in a double-bill of Harold Pinter plays as part of the highly-anticipated Pinter at the Pinter Season. Presented by The Jamie Lloyd Company, The Lover / The Collection is directed by Jamie Lloyd and follows themes of sexual desire, seduction, lies and secrets, making it an unmissable comedic compilation.
The Lover and The Collection have been paired together, forming a double-bill addressing the darker undercurrents of otherwise-conventional relationships. Sexual desire, seduction and secrets mingle with power dynamics in these two short, comedic masterpieces.
David Suchet stars in the double-bill, alongside John Macmillan (Chewing Gum). Suchet’s extensive film, television and theatre credits have made him a household name around the world, being best-known for his recurring role in Agatha Christie’s Poirot, as well as The Importance of Being Earnest, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and Oppenheimer. Further casting includes Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake) and Russell Tovey (Angels in America).
The Pinter at the Pinter Season is led by Jamie Lloyd, who also directs a selection of the plays presented in this season. Considered as one of Britain’s most versatile younger directors, Lloyd’s credits range from classics to musicals, including two residencies at Trafalgar Studios with his season of plays in Trafalgar Transformed.
Honouring Harold Pinter’s legacy a decade after his death, the season is a fitting tribute to the impact he had on British theatre.
