Harold Pinter: Early Work

Synopsis
Performance of excerpts from two very early works by Harold Pinter: "The Room" and "A Slight Ache", filmed in 1965, when they played at the Writers Stage in New York City. Performers: "The Room": Frances Sternhagen, Margaret Linn, and Ian Jenkins. "A Slight Ache": Frances Sternhagen and Henderson Forsythe. This programme includes a brief interview with director Word Baker. Each of these plays is in one act, and each illustrates one of Pinter’s recurrent themes: the prison in which individuals live as the result of their inability to communicate with each other.
