About The Pinter Plays: The Collection and a Kind of Alaska - Off Broadway

Show Info


Atlantic eagerly returns to the work of Harold Pinter (the first major production of his work to be done in NYC since his death in 2008), several seasons after its acclaimed production of his first and last plays, The Room and Celebration. Here again, the plays are separated chronologically by twenty years; both, however, are steeped in the author's signature humor, mystery and psychological tension.

In The Collection (1962), a four a.m. phone call and a surprise visitor set off a series of conversations about potential infidelities among two couples. And a middle-aged woman who has been asleep in a hospital room awakens after thirty years and must reorient herself to a greatly changed world in A Kind of Alaska (1982), which was inspired by the work of Oliver Sacks in his seminal book, Awakenings.

Performance Dates: November 3, 2010 - December 12, 2010
