Julian Sands in A CELEBRATION OF HAROLD PINTER, directed by John Malkovich, McCullough Theatre, University of Texas, September 24 and 25, 2015

In 2005 Nobel Prize-winning playwright and poet Harold Pinter approached Julian Sands to prepare a set of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. Working closely with Pinter, Sands was granted a rare insight into the author's personality, life, and work. This extraordinary collaboration evolved into a wonderfully humorous and fascinating solo show directed by John Malkovich, titled A Celebration of Harold Pinter. 

This is an evening of outstanding theater with an extraordinary actor, great words, and an audience. Devoid of pretense or glittery trappings, A Celebration of Harold Pinter gets to the soul of the man—poet, playwright, husband, political activist, Nobel winner, mortal. A Celebration of Harold Pinter was nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.

Presented in partnership with Texas Theatre and Dance and KLRU

“... a performance that captures the pugnacity, precision and a little of the dry humor of an exacting writer.” — Variety

The 28-minute video clip was provided via the promoters courtesy of the Charlie Rose show.
