First look production images have been released for Harold Pinter’s The Dwarfs which has opened at London’s White Bear Theatre.
Three old school friends, Mark, Pete and Len, knock about the streets, pubs and cafes of East London arguing the toss about art, life and love. The fourth member of their tight-knit group is Virginia, a young teacher. As autumn draws in, each of the friends finds their perception of one another and themselves irrevocably changed.
Adapted from Harold Pinter’s only novel, The Dwarfs is semi-autobiographical, fascinating, disturbing and humorous, and contains the seeds of all his subsequent work.
Director Harry Burton has a long association with directing work by Harold Pinter including the critically acclaimed 50th anniversary West End production of ‘The Dumb Waiter’ in 2007 starring Jason Isaacs as Ben and Lee Evans as Gus; ‘The Room’ (Royal Court Theatre), ‘The Lover’ (Bridewell), and he directed the acclaimed Channel 4 documentary, ‘Working with Pinter’.
The cast features, Denise Laniyan, Charlie MacGechan, Ossian Perret and Joseph Potter.
The Dwarfs is at the White Bear Theatre until 5th June.
