As the soirée goes on inside the elegant townhouse, why are people being rounded up in the street? And what is really being said behind the smokescreen of cultivated cocktail party chitchat about health clubs and island retreats? Employing the original cast from the Almeida Theatre production and directed by Pinter himself, this 1992 production of Party Time—a surreal drama of mannerly rudeness, emotional violence, and sexual tyranny—’bears all the hallmarks of Pinter’s strength,’ says critic Christopher Edwards, of The Spectator (London).
Director: Harold Pinter.
Stars: Barry Foster, Peter Howitt, Cordelia Roche, Nicola Pagett, Dorothy Tutin, Roger Lloyd Pack.
I watched this in its original transmission….can it really be so long ago..
I know right, crazy to think that it’s been almost 30 years since 1992, it really seems like it was yesterday.
Thank you so much for making this available! It’s a great adaptation!
