Harold Pinter Hosts Absent Friends

Date Posted: 14/12/2011

Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends - a classic comedy of manners and social embarrassment - opens in the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre (formerly the Comedy Theatre) from the 26th January, running until the 14th April.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the cast comprises David Armand (John), Elizabeth Berrington (Marge), Katherine Parkinson (Diana), Steffan Rhodri (Paul), Reece Shearsmith (Colin) and Kara Tointon (Evelyn).

When Colin loses his fiancée, his married friends invite him round for comfort over tea and sandwiches. As the tea starts to pour, it's clear that trouble is brewing with a wickedly funny blend of jealousy, infidelity and barely concealed loathing. Tension starts to boil and maybe Colin isn’t the one who needs help. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Group travel organisers should contact their preferred ticketing agent for more details and group rates.
