People loved (I mean, loved) Two by Pinter at ACT in January, and what’s not to love about free readings of Harold Pinter’s work by some of Seattle’s strongest actors? New theater company Shadow and Light has dedicated itself to running through the Nobel laureate’s canon, starting with one-acts A Kind of Alaska and Ashes to Ashes earlier this year. The shows were such a success, ACT’s Central Heating Lab asked series curator Frank Corrado to throw together four more performances. The series continues tonight, with The Room—Pinter’s sinister first play from 1957—and The Collection, a sexually charged drama about marital fidelity. The cast is TBA.
Admission to Pinter Fortnightly is free, but reservations are encouraged since seating at ACT’s Bullitt Theatre fills up quickly. RSVP by calling ACT’s box office: 206-292-7676.
