The Pinter at the Pinter season will delve into his shorter works, that despite their length, pack no less of that characteristic punch.

Often lauded as one of the most outstanding plays of the 20th century, The Collection is classic Pinter. Full of ambiguity and the implication of threat, The Collection follows two separate couple as they become entangled in sexual desire and a quest for power.
