“I’ve written 29 plays. Isn’t that enough?”
Harold Pinter, one of my favorite playwrights, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
“Pinter restored theatre to its basic elements: an enclosed space and unpredictable dialogue, where people are at the mercy of each other and pretence crumbles.”
Pinter’s work “uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into oppression’s closed rooms”.
