One for the Road/The New World Order/Mountain Language/Ashes to Ashes
Opening the Pinter at the Pinter season is a dynamic collection of Harold Pinter's most potent and dangerous political plays. The incendiary One for The Road
is Pinter at his most terrifying. A ruthless government official interrogates a dissident and his family, but is the torturer more tortured than his victims? The New World Order
explores how the abuse of power is legitimised in the name of freedom and democracy, as two brutal interrogators prepare to inflict their terrible punishment on a blind-folded insurgent. Pinter investigates the suppression of ideas and the supposed threat of non-conformity in Mountain Language
: a group of captives attempt to find a voice when their shared language is banned by the state. Ashes to Ashes
- During an early summer evening, Devlin questions Rebecca who tells of chilling instances of abuse.
