The Lover archiveThe Lover was initially written by Pinter as a television play and was broadcast in 1963 but was quickly moved to the stage in September of the same year in a production directed by the author. A commuter heads to the city from Windsor every morning and heads home every night. However, the illusion of respectability is shattered when his wife calmly tells him about the wild lover she entertains in the afternoons. One of Pinter's most direct exercises, the play is a darkly comic tale of the necessity and danger of fantasy.

Author Harold Pinter.
