Here's what you say about us...

Harold Pinter was born in London in 1930. He lived with Antonia Fraser from 1975 and they married in 1980. In 1995 he won the David Cohen British Literature Prize, awarded for a lifetime's achievement in literature. In 1996 he was given the Laurence Olivier Award for a lifetime's achievement in theatre. In 2002 he was made a Companion of Honour for services to literature. In 2005 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and, in the same year, the Wilfred Owen Award for Poetry and the Franz Kafka Award (Prague). In 2006 he was awarded the Europe Theatre Prize and, in 2007, the highest French honour, the Lgion d'honneur. He died in December 2008.

Mr Pinter, on the evidence of this work, possesses the most original, disturbing and arresting talent in theatrical London.
Sunday Times - Harold Hobson

It combines the structure of a rep thriller with the guilt mechanisms of Kafka's The Trial ... Pinter's enduring, ultimately undefinable play, which left the critics floundering in 1958, has the power of all first-rate art to acknowledge the past and reflect the future while existing in the tangible present.
Guardian - Michael Billington

A darkly comic masterpiece . . . Laughs aren't presumed upon - they arise of their own accord, as does a mounting dread, achieved by Pinter's ingeniously disconcerting way with words.
Telegraph - Dominic Cavendish

A decade on from his death, Harold Pinter remains pretty much incomparable as a playwright . . . a brilliant play
